Covenant House Vancouver
Covenant House exists for those young people for whom there is often no one else - young people aged 16 - 24 who have either willingly fled physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse or those who have been forced from their homes.
In response to the enormity and severity of the issues facing our youth, Covenant House has developed three core services (Community Support Services, CSS, which provides street outreach and a daily, non-residential, drop-in program; a 54 bed, 24 hour crisis shelter; and Rights of Passage, ROP, a 6 - 24 months transitional living program). These core services are supported by several in-house programs (drug and alcohol and mental health counselling, life-skills training etc.) designed to provide each young person with a "one-stop shop" approach to leaving the streets and achieving independence.
Primarily privately funded, Covenant House relies on the generosity of over 50,000 individuals and organizations to provide shelter, food, clothing and counselling to over 2,000 young people each year.
