Who We Are
Harvest Project is a community-based urban relief organization. We touch more than 1000 people each month – involving one-on-one client-care coaching, emergency drop-in visits, appointments at our grocery depot and Clothes For Change thrift shop, retail thrift shoppers, as well as donors. We provide assistance to North Shore residents from Deep Cove in the east to Horseshoe Bay in the west.
In 2012, Harvest Project positively impacted the community by providing:
- 3,000+ client-care coaching & drop-in sessions to individuals and families
- 8,000 food hampers & emergency-bags of food
- Food-recovery program that redistributed fresh and non-perishable food valued at over $540,000
- Clothes For Change Thrift Shop – clothing support for clients plus retail sales to public
- More than 21,000 volunteer-hours of service by 180 North Shore residents
Harvest Project helps people in need by bringing together the resources of the community to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support that empowers each person to take positive steps in their lives. For 20 years, Harvest Project has been reaching out to individuals and families to help them cope with critical life circumstances such as family break-ups, illness, job loss, and poverty.
This past year, 40% of clients were single-parents, 40% were new residents with their families and 20% were individuals with chronic health challenges.
Harvest Project nurtures the potential of every client and coaches them towards a more positive future. The core of our mission is the Christian responsibility to love our neighbours and care for those who are experiencing loss and those who are in need.
180 volunteers, 3 full-time and 3 part-time staff members, and Board of Directors serve our neighbours from a new client-care hub facility at 1073 Roosevelt Crescent, North Vancouver.
Harvest Project is a registered charity in the Province of BC (Charity#: BN140525205RR0001).
