Encounter Recap Union Gospel Mission


"I didn't have enough respect for people that I pass on the street every day..." - Kevin, Encounter participant. Were you one of the hundreds of folks from Metro Vancouver that came through Encounter? Were your perceptions changed? Was your heart opened? Are you fired up to get involved and help end homelessness? For those who attended, Encounter was an eye-opening experience that left many speechless. This event gave participants a greater insight into the many barriers the people experiencing homelessness face every day, and really demonstrated that “you can’t get out of homelessness on your own”.
