2019 Catholic Charities Annual Report

The Door is Open and Men's Hostel

Thank you for being a part of our family of donors and volunteers. Your support brought hope to the most vulnerable in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. In 2019, the Men’s Hostel celebrated their 60th anniversary of providing overnight stays and support for men experiencing homelessness. This past year, they provided 44,000 stays. The Door is Open continued to expand their women’s grief support group and served over 107,000 meals in 2019.

I hope that the stories in this annual report below provide you with inspiration and encouragement.

James Borkowski,
Archbishop’s Delegate for Operations
