Many local youth and families lack the tools and resources they need to thrive—inequalities that become magnified during the holiday season. To support those who need it most, Family Services of Greater Vancouver (FSGV) is calling upon the community to pledge a gift through its Caring Neighbours campaign, running November 13 to December 31. All funds raised will advance the charity’s mission to empower the community’s most vulnerable children, youth and families to build brighter tomorrows.
FSGV serves severely marginalized homeless youth, people in poverty, high-risk victims of domestic violence, and survivors of extreme violence, abuse or neglect. The mounting cost of living has made it increasingly difficult for many of these individuals and families to access essential resources. When their basic needs go unmet, it can have a detrimental ripple effect across many areas of their lives. FSGV’s programs help stabilize unhoused youth, survivors and families in crisis and empower them to start a new chapter through food, housing and mental health support.
The Caring Neighbours campaign, which runs from November 13 to December 31, raises critical funds to advance this work. It calls upon the public to show neighbourly love and donate to help those in need. While it takes place during the holidays, its impact is felt all throughout the year. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, moving youth and families out of crisis and toward a future of possibilities. This year, FSGV has set sights on reaching a fundraising goal of $250,000. Your gift goes twice as far this year, with Amazon committed to matching the first $50,000 in donations received.
Make a meaningful difference by supporting FSGV this holiday season. When you donate to Caring Neighbours, you will provide children, youth and families with access to vital crisis support, counselling and poverty reduction programs.
