Who We Are
Harvest Project is a community-based urban relief organization. We connect with 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, and donors. We provide assistance to North Shore residents from Deep Cove in the east to Horseshoe Bay in the west.
In 2015, Harvest Project positively impacted the community by providing:
- 4,600+ client-care coaching & drop-in sessions
- 5,500+ food hampers & emergency-bags of food
- Food-recovery program that redistributed fresh and non-perishable food valued at over $500,000
- Clothes For Change Thrift Shop – clothing support for clients plus retail sales to public
- 120 active volunteers and 19,000 volunteer-hours of service annually
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 more than 23 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.
Harvest Project’s clients are people like you and me – individuals, young families, single parents, newer residents, older folks, and some individuals with serious 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.
Volunteers, along with 3 full-time and 6 part-time staff members, and Board of Directors serve our neighbours from our client-care hub at 1073 Roosevelt Crescent, North Vancouver.
Harvest Project is a registered Canadian charity. (#BN140525205RR0001).
