Covenant House -The person who chose to acquire this painting says: ” I am choosing The Covenant House which is Downtown Vancouver. I am choosing this charity as they help at-risk youth and homeless youth with shelter, crisis intervention, outreach programs as well as many other things. Being in recovery myself, I know that with the right tools and support, there is always hope for a sober and fulfilling life. Some of the youth arrive homeless, while some live in substandard housing (such as crashing in single-room occupancy hotels or couch surfing)—but all hang out on the streets and are at risk. Street life is brutally dangerous for vulnerable youth, and when we find kids in crisis, our team is trained to connect them with psychiatrists, medical professionals and social workers, or to bring them to our Crisis Shelter for safety and support. I truly feel that Covenant House has saved the lives of countless youth. There are so many aspects of Covenant House that I cannot do it justice here.” Charity registration number: BN 897675625 RR0001
