What We Do
Harvest Project serves Metro-Vancouver’s North Shore, extending a hand up to those in need, offering a vision for a restored community.
In one of the wealthiest regions in Canada, critical financial and family needs are often hidden and services are scarce for those who find themselves in desperate times.
For 20 years, Harvest Project has been reaching out to those who are experiencing extreme challenges with family break-downs, illness, job loss, and poverty. Our programs provide individual client-coaching and active-listening, provision of food, clothing supports, assistance for workforce re-entry, food-recovery and redistribution, and social enterprise through our Clothes For Change Thrift Boutique.
Harvest Project’s impact in the community:
- We provide a safety-net for hundreds of our neighbours by delivering resources for physical, emotional and spiritual support.
- We bring together more than 180 volunteers contributing over 21,000 hours annually
- We strengthen the community with support from corporations, governments, schools, churches and other non-profits, our food-recovery network, and many other generous donors.
Helping to restore our neighbours to health and stability benefits the whole community. Our vision is to enlarge our work as a sustainable and compassionate presence for North Shore residents, by North Shore residents.
