Norsat Helps Covenant House Provide Hope to Street Youth
There are hundreds of youth living on the Vancouver streets each night. The majority of street youth have experienced physical, sexual and or emotional abuse, often at the hands of the adults that were responsible for taking care of them. Sexual exploitation, drug abuse, poverty and illness are commonplace on the streets and many of our youth are re-victimized there, having fled one unsafe situation only to find their circumstances often worse.
Norsat has been a long-time supporter of the Covenant House which helps homeless, runaway and at-risk young people for short-term residential care through their Crisis Program and longer term care in their transitional living program Rights of Passage (ROP). Norsat was pleased to once again provide Covenant House with a donation to support their various programs.
