Volunteer Opportunities: Yes
Now in our 18th year of providing care to Vancouver's street youth, we do so with the strength of over 120 volunteers and 55,000 donors behind us. We will continue to augment our carefully designed continuum of care and improve upon our services, driven by the ultimate goal shared by all 21 Covenant House sites: that there be no youth on the street.
“We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God's presence among His people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our youth.”
