Building futures for vulnerable youth in our community
Covenant House Vancouver is currently located at 575 Drake Street. From this location, we have been serving youth in the city of Vancouver since 1997. However, as the city has grown, so has the number of youth needing our help. At this point, we have done all we can to maximize our current space but now there just isn’t enough room to meet the need.
We have embarked on an expansion project that will create new and renovated spaces that will enable us increase and enhance our services for homeless and at-risk youth.
As part of this project, we are constructing two purposely designed buildings at the intersection of Drake and Seymour Streets that will be safe and welcoming places for both our residential and support services. Recreational, educational and health & wellness spaces will complement additions to our program services, giving youth the tools needed to heal from past traumas and to blossom into the healthy, happy people they deserve to be.
The final step of this expansion will include fully renovating our existing space at 326 West Pender Street.
Planning, design, construction and fundraising will continue over the next few years with an anticipated completion at the end of 2021.
Completion of our first building is fast approaching, and we are planning to move in this summer. The building looks amazing – it is brighter, more modern and purpose built for Covenant House Vancouver. We can’t wait to welcome youth into their new space! Keep an eye on this page for more updates.
