What moves you? Join us on October 2, 2021 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable, and exploited people everywhere.
We'll send a groovy RIDE shirt to those who raise their minimums ($150 for adults, $75 for those 17 and under). Fundraise early and you'll be able to wear your shirt proudly for weeks before event day. It's a great conversation started as you recruit teammates.
Vancouver Urban Ministries (VUM) helps children with learning difficulties in East Vancouver reach their full potential.
VUM provides free specialized one-on-one tutoring for children who have learning disabilities in two partner schools in our community. We also provide free music lessons, summer events, field trips, family gatherings and special events.
We work in Grandview Woodlands and Strathcona in East Vancouver. 50% of the children we tutor are Aboriginal, and 45% are from immigrant families. Most of our students are from low-income, single parent households living in subsidized housing. These families struggle with extreme poverty and the future of many of the children and youth that we connect with is considered to be “at-risk”.
In all we do, we seek to build relationships and contribute to the well-being of the community while sharing the love of Christ.
Help the families in your community by riding together with Vancouver Urban Ministries.
