A little bit about First United:
With a staff of seventy, and the assistance of numerous volunteers, First United provides low-barrier, essential services and programs to the most vulnerable and multi-barriered population of Vancouver. We do so within a framework of four pillars:
· Social justice—legal and systemic advocacy, education/practicums
· Hospitality—free meals, clothing, personal care services, harm reduction, office services
· Housing—shelter, affordable/supported apartments, bin and cart storage, referrals
· Healing—pastoral /spiritual care, support groups, First Nations ministry
We are a sanctuary, a place of rest, replenishment and support for all who walk through our doors. Our ministry cares for and supports the whole person within this four pillars framework. Our philosophy is to accept people where they are at and assist them in making the changes they want in their lives. Our work is to make hope possible.
