We can't wait. It is up to us to look after each other this New Year!

People persevere at DTES Market, 62 East Hastings Street, with profound needs.

Proud supporters have potential to power what is possible, by contributing to this public campaign.

Have a direct impact in the daily DTES Market social operations where we share sheltered space with Vancouver's street vendors and shoppers.

Help safeguard the dignity of our neighbours in the collective Downtown Eastside; considered Canada’s poorest neighbourhood. 

  • Please provide a WISHLIST gift through this website +SHARE news about it in your social media 
  • /contribute via cheque or online with an anonymous one-time contribution or public commitment of your choice to support those courageously coping outdoors

Use the shelter and device your viewing this with now; select DONATE BUTTON to invest in staff, handwashing stations and heaters, tents and toilet rentals that create daytime community space.

Surviving in our city’s concrete backyard takes community building. 

Trusted 7days a week, 365 days a year, people look forward to coming here day in and day out. Through peer support, those facing precarious living conditions can sell items that secure survival income. With outdoor event supplies we keep people connected, avoiding the dangers of taking cover alone. 

While we try to alleviate barriers from those already bearing the burdens of systemic challenges. Your donation would go to work protecting people from exhaustion in the elements of our West Coast Winter.
