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.
You have helped our Community Campaign raise $174,308 for the expansion to date! Thank you!
Our first building is now complete, and the youth have
moved across the road into their new home. The building looks amazing – it is
brighter, more modern and purpose built for Covenant House Vancouver!
We will shortly begin demolition of our old building
at 575 Drake Street, and start work on our second building – this new 10-storey
space will house more beds for our youth, as well as new fitness facilities, an
art therapy room and classrooms!
are so excited to be able to offer more support and choice for each unique
young person that comes through our doors.
The Good Neighbour Agreement is an understanding between Covenant House Vancouver and its surrounding community, staff, volunteers and the youth who access our services, including both residents and non-residents. It is intended to facilitate a harmonious relationship between Covenant House Vancouver and its surrounding community.
