JRG strives to take part in Community events local to our businesses. We’re always on board to do everything we can to ensure that the local community is strong, prosperous, and a lot of fun! Whether we show up in our booth or lend support in other ways, you can count on us.
On any given night there are between 500 and 1000 young people living on the streets in the Lower Mainland. Our communities’ streets can be dangerous. Sexual exploitation, drug abuse, poverty and illness are commonplace. Many youths are re-victimized on the streets, having fled one unsafe situation only to find their circumstances are often worse. Exposed to the elements, afraid, and without hope; this is the reality for kids on the street. The Joseph Richard Group has partnered with the Covenant House in the city of Vancouver and Youth Unlimited in the Fraser Valley to help raise funds for this cause and every year, our team Sleeps Out for one night to generate awareness and revenue in support of Covenant House BC and Youth Unlimited.
It’s up to us and our partners to raise the bar for our homeless youth. Participation is open to businesses, organizations and individuals within our communities. We hope you’re inspired to get involved.
