Covenant House604-685-7474

Our 54-bed crisis shelter offers safe housing, food, clothing and counselling to young people aged 16 – 22 on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon intake, we see to a young person’s immediate needs first, which is usually medical attention, food and rest. During the first three days, a youth worker sits down with a young person to learn about what brought them to Covenant House and to see how we can help. An individualized plan is created and young people meet with a youth worker twice daily to ensure progress is being made and that the young person’s needs are being met. Plans vary from substance misuse counselling, to treatment for mental illness, to finding a job and a safe place to live.
