Covenant House Vancouver would like to thank Newmont for supporting vulnerable youth in the community.
John Mullally, Senior Director, Sustainability and External Relations, Canada explains why Newmont is so community driven: “Our purpose at Newmont is to improve lives through sustainable and responsible mining, so supporting Covenant House in its mission to serve youth with love and respect helps us do just that. As a values-driven organization with a strong focus on community development, Newmont sees firsthand the incredible impact that our charitable investments have on Canadians — and we hope that this gift helps vulnerable youth build the bright future that we all deserve.”
Newmont’s transformational gift was instrumental, not only in the near completion of our expansion project, but in supporting the programs and services that make up our continuum of care.
It is support like this that enables Covenant House Vancouver to be able to expand its physical spaces and services that help youth transition from the street to independent living. Newmont’s incredible support has made it possible for us to increase our capacity to serve more young people with complex needs, utilizing two new state-of-the-art buildings and our soon-to-be beautifully renovated space for our Rights of Passage program, the transitional program that teaches the life skills that youth need to be successful, while supporting them as they become independent.
Recently, members of Newmont’s Community Investment Committee came to visit our new building at 1280 Seymour Street, where they were able to see, firsthand, the impact of their support.
Thank you, Newmont, for being such a tremendously supportive community partner.
