Outreach and Drop-In at CHV

Covenant House’s Street Outreach team helps youth who are living, or at risk of living, on Vancouver’s streets or who are precariously housed. The team builds trusting relationships with youth by meeting them where they are and by being a consistent, supportive presence in their lives. Travelling on foot, our Outreach Team offers food, needed items, minor medical attention, and support. They invite youth to come to our Drop-In Centre for a hot meal or help with anything they need.

At our Drop-In Centre, youth receive:

  • Connections to Youth Workers for support, counselling and personal planning
  • Access to an in-house addictions counsellor and programs focused on support and recovery
  • Appointments with mental health clinicians and psychiatrists
  • Help from a Housing Support Worker and independent living start-up kits
  • Referrals to other social services
  • Help with finding employment and referrals to job centres and training programs
  • Financial assistance to get back home, if that’s an option
  • Recreational opportunities including yoga, soccer, hockey, basketball and baseball
  • Food, clothing and hygiene supplies
  • Use of our message board, long-distance phone plan and mailing address
  • Shower and laundry facilities available
