COVID-19 and Covenant House Vancouver

Thank you for all that you do to create safe spaces for vulnerable youth, we truly value you being part of our family. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has presented Covenant House Vancouver with new and evolving challenges as we continue to provide essential services to youth experiencing homelessness. 


Our doors are still open and we've enacted our COVID-19 Emergency Plan to ensure the health and wellbeing of the youth we serve and our staff. This plan brings on changes in the organization ranging from non-essential staff working from home, to staggering meal times to ensure safe social distancing for the youth living with us, to enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols, and more. 


Covenant House Vancouver is following the guidelines put out by the BC CDC and we are modifying daily to keep up and stay safe. 


One recent change we implemented was that we converted our Finance office at the Pender building into a second lounge for the youth. There are currently 32 young men living in our Crisis Program - this is too many to maintain safe social distancing in the lounge area. We adjusted our spaces as the youth are our top priority and they now have access to safe lounging spaces. 


I hope this warms your heart as it did mine. 


Thanks again for your incredible support! Wishing health and safety to you and your loved ones. 


Warmly and with gratitude,
