“I think that First United saved my life…I don’t know where I’d be without them, and they’ve given me hope because they’ve helped me to be strong. When I’m not feeling strong I can always come here and get filled up again.”
– Beverly Chapados

For people like Beverly living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, hope can be a hard thing to come by. Even as the weather improves, the hardships of homelessness are complicated and numerous. The rising cost of living in Vancouver is also driving more people onto the streets, with nowhere else to go.
By supporting First United, you’ll not only provide a place to go for people struggling with homelessness but the opportunity for help and renewal through vital services like advocacy and clinical care. We are the only shelter in the city of Vancouver that does intensive case management in addition to our many other services. Becoming a monthly donor means stability and a greater long-term impact on the lives of those we serve.
