What is the Street Life Project?

The Street Life Project is designed to engage street involved youth in East Vancouver in meaningful relationships to help them move towards a safe, healthy and holistic well being. We use a converted RV as a mobile drop in youth center where the focus is on building relationship, reputation and referral.

 

Why is their a need for the Street Life Project?

The Street Life Project exists as a way to bridge a gap into the lives of the teens that frequent the area. We hope to provide a safe, non-judgement space , where they are free to be themselves and given the opportunity to build relationships with caring adults. The Commercial and Broadway area is known for its shops and fun restaurants but not so widely known for the things happening under the surface, things like: drug trafficking, gang recruitment and sexual exploitation. We hope combat these issues by providing a hopeful, encouraging and life giving alternative.

 

What else is provided?

As well as meaningful relationships with these youth we also hope to provide to their basic needs as well. On the two days that we visit the area we often bring out soup, sandwiches, hot chocolate, hats, socks, mitts etc. We are also a place of resource for these youth helping them to connect to the services and programs that are needed help them move toward a abundant life.
