About Inner Hope Youth Ministries

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING TO SUPPORT YOUTH IN EAST VANCOUVER.


Inner Hope Youth Ministries has become a place of hope, safety, and growth for youth and families in East Vancouver impacted by inter-generational trauma.


The journey towards breaking cycles of poverty, addiction and abuse is extremely challenging. The difficulties youth can face include: the loss of close family members, the impacts of substance abuse, and family separation. And yet, Inner Hope’s multi-generational, close-knit community has become a place of belonging. We journey with a diverse community made up of approximately 85% Indigenous families.


One of the resources Inner Hope provides, is a home for 4-5 youth who are seeking stable, supportive housing. Located near bus routes, a community center and shops youth have easy access to school and work. Live-in House Parents provide role modeling and ongoing support. And yet, it’s the residents themselves who create the homelike atmosphere as they welcome family and friends and support one another.


This year’s Ride for Refuge will raise funds for The Home. Your support helps nurture a safe, caring home for youth and the stability necessary for growth.
