'In order to heal, stabilize, and get the support they need, people experiencing homelessness with mental illness and/or substance use disorders need to be embraced in our society, not excluded and further marginalized.'   

                                                                                                                            When We Walk By authors Adler and Burnes

Located in downtown Vancouver, the Couve Collective is a community who values connection, balance, and personal growth. We offer a safe, comfortable space for individuals and their children to gather, and provide various groups, activities, and resources which promote a flourishing, self-directed life. We are dedicated to bringing people together, healing families, building healthy relationships, and promoting joy and passion for life. 

On a daily basis we provide:

         Hot meals and healthy snacks to individuals facing food scarcity

         Wellness circles to offer encouragement towards a healthy and purposeful life

         Support for families to help break the cycle of addiction and homelessness 

         A safe space for individuals to meet with community partners

         Peer support to help individuals take positive steps towards self-sufficiency

We are situated in a neighborhood which maintains a large unhoused population.  Our services are member-based and we strive to motivate people to engage in lasting change.  Our program offerings include support to people who are serious about ending substance use.  We also provide individualized support as people transition to stable housing and jobs.  We believe in loving accountability and hold people responsible to basic membership requirements.  Our members experience life-changing decisions each and every day - and we are grateful to be part of their recovery story.   

Give YOUR change towards real CHANGE.

When you support Couve Collectively financially, you can be certain your donation will positively impact women, children and men in our community.  If you are drawn to find solutions for our societal issues of homelessness and addiction, please support us with a one-time donation or become a Collectivist - our recurring monthly donation program which provides us with a solid financial foundation on which we build life-changing services.  We truly appreciate your generosity.
