As we say goodbye to 2023, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve had at Covenant House Vancouver. This year has been marked by significant growth and positive change, all made possible by the unwavering support of our community. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, advocates, and all of those who supported us during the winter season and participated in our Triple Match Campaign. A special thanks goes out to our generous match donors, Kim and Bryan James, who made this match possible.
The heart of our journey lies in the expansion of vital programs, including the much-celebrated Cook Up Your Future and Career Pathways programs, as well as the launch of the Foundations program. These initiatives, along with the implementation of Emergency Weather Beds and the expansion of our Drop-In and Outreach services, showcase our commitment of meeting the diverse needs of those we serve.
Through every change and challenge, one constant has remained — the incredible impact of your donations. Your gifts have been the driving force behind the transformation of the lives of the youth who turn to Covenant House Vancouver for support. It’s a testament to the strength of our community and the positive change we can achieve together.
At Covenant House Vancouver, we believe in welcoming every young person without judgment — we offer them unconditional love and absolute respect, often for the first time in their lives. Your support allows our frontline staff to build meaningful and trusting relationships with the youth who access our programs.
To all those who have invested in the youth we serve, thank you. Your generosity is not just a donation; it’s an investment in resilient, independent, and bright futures. As we look back on 2023, we are filled with gratitude for the positive impact that we’ve made together.
The journey of 2023, at Covenant House Vancouver, has been one of growth, change, and impactful transformations. We extend our deepest thanks to our community for being a part of this incredible year. Here’s to the continued positive change that we can achieve together in the coming years.
