Where the Money Goes
Atira Women's Resource Society
In 2015 the always amazing Golf for Good tournament raised more than $65,000 to further Atira’s goal to end violence against women and children. Funds raised have been allocated to the programming at Canada’s first recycled shipping container project, which includes 12 recycled shipping containers turned into 12 fully self-contained housing units. The units are occupied with mentors who have life experience and roots in the Downtown Eastside and who are in a good place and able to provide mentorship to the young women living next door at Imouto Housing for Young Women, a program which provides temporary long term housing for homeless youth in the Downtown Eastside.

The funds raised by the tournament have been put towards our Heritage Renovation Project Capital Fundraising Campaign. This project is the green renovation of our 1928 Heritage Building to transform it into a licensed childcare facility with 65 licensed childcare spaces. In the spirit of health and outdoor play, the funds are specifically going towards the renovation of the outdoor playground.

Covenant House Vancouver
Covenant House is grateful to participate in the Golf for Good tournament for the first time this year. Funds raised will support Covenant House’s Continuum of Care, which offers homeless and at-risk youth a clear exit from life on the streets. Our Community Support Services program is often the first point of contact for our youth workers to meet and start building relationships with our young people. This program features street outreach and a drop-in centre where youth will find a warm and welcoming place to relax, and where they can access the supports they need. Our Residential Crisis Program provides 54 safe and warm beds (30 male and 24 female), nutritious food, clothing and counselling. ‘Rights of Passage’, our supportive transitional living program, gives youth the chance to learn and practice new life skills, further their education, or expand their employment experiences to help them build a strong foundation for healthy independence.
