The Vancouver Covenant House first opened in 1997 with only 12 beds for at-risk youth. Today, there are 21 Covenant House sites in Metro Vancouver supporting over 1900 youth dealing with these staggering stats:
50% of the youth CH supports struggle with mental illness
70% have experienced abuse in their life
80% were forced from their homes
This year London Pacific made a donation to the Covenant House to support their endeavor to provide sanctuary and a brighter future to youth who are are homeless, lost and afraid.
“Given current market conditions and the cost of housing in Metro Vancouver, this year more than ever, it is important that we give where we live” – Keath Williams Managing Broker, London Pacific.
