As you know, Pardalis Studio is all about providing opportunities for youth. We are about creating opportunities for youth to become leaders of tomorrow. It is our main passion at Pardalis Studio. When the youth (Diaspora Dance Group) at our church — Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church Surrey BC – decided to do a sleep out to help raise money for homeless youth – we jumped at the opportunity. It is such an honour to have an opportunity to help these youth.
So in May, we the owners of Pardalis Studio — Natalia and Akylina, along with some amazing ladies will be sleeping out on the street in support of homeless and at-risk youth in our city and we need your help.
What is this program? It is through Covenant House.
Covenant House Vancouver offers a clear exit from life on the street to young people aged 16 – 24. They make this possible through a carefully designed continuum of care including Street Outreach, a Drop-in Centre, 2 gender-specific Crisis Programs, supportive housing, drug & alcohol counseling, a mental health program, and life-skills training. These are some statistics of the youth who access services at Covenant House:
70% have witnessed family violence
Over 50% aged out of foster care at 19, with no home, income or supports
39% suffer from mental illness
Help us reach our fundraising goal to help provide critical resources for at-risk and homeless youth.
Any amount will help and is greatly appreciated.We also just found out that our entire’s team donations between April 19, 2018 and May 3, 2018 will be matched. WOW!!
You can either donate directly to Akylina or Natalia or through our group ….
or to our entire team:
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
