First United is a place of welcome for people who experience
homelessness, poverty, and mental health and addictions issues in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Our programs include: legal advocacy; emergency shelter
and social housing; meals; the Community Help Desk (health and hygiene supplies, community referrals, taxes, foot-care, and phone and mail); and spirit programs. We support and celebrate the inherent strengths of all people, of all walks of life.
