Fireside AGM - with Presenting Sponsor Title


AMAZING NEWS EVERYONE!!!! One of our amazing supporter has kickstarted a wave of generosity by donating $10,000 to Zero Ceiling!
But here’s the twist – they’ve thrown down a challenge: Can we turn this $10,000 into $20,000 by December 5th, 2023?

Here’s where YOU come in! Starting Tuesday, November 21, 2023 until December 5, 2023 we’re calling on our incredible community to help us reach this ambitious goal. Click here to make a donation and be part of this heartwarming challenge.

And we have an exciting little bonus for all of you. Every donation during this period automatically enters you into a draw for a chance to win a family day pass courtesy of Sea to Sky Gondola! It’s our way of saying THANK YOU for your invaluable support. WOO! How great is that?

No donation is too small because every dollar transforms into a super dollar to ensure we are able to provide a safety net for young people facing or experiencing homelessness.

With new Work 2 Live participants who joined us this fall and new Adventure Session participants joining us in the new year, we want to ensure we are able to provide what’s needed to ensure they can thrive and successfully transition into adults. This includes, and is not limited to, providing safe and stable environments, housing, supportive employment, wraparound support, access to mental health, food security and so much more. Everyone deserves love and support on their journey to a brighter future.

From now until December 5th, 2023 let’s come together as a community and help us reach our goal of turning an incredible $10,000 donation into $20,000 because, everyone deserves a place to call home.

Well Supported People Do Well

When people are accepted and celebrated for who they are and provided access to resources and supports, they can heal and thrive. Zero Ceiling’s practice is centered in relationships – grounded in love and unconditional positive regard.

To ensure our success, we know that we need to be able to provide a safety net that includes:

  • a safe, stable environment;
  • housing that removes barriers and meets fundamental needs;
  • supportive employment that leads to economic independence;
  • reduced practical barriers to recreation (e.g., gear) and land-based programming;
  • transitional support beyond the program with no aging out to ensure lasting relationships;
  • a community of peers and staff, which provides what a family provides including support, boundary-setting, consistency, and a safe space to experience success and setbacks; and
  • advocacy for individual and systemic change;
  • individual unconditional wraparound support, including:
      • promotion of self-sufficiency;
      • self-harm reduction;
      • support in employment;
      • outdoor programming;
      • structure;
      • 24/7/365 access to in-house support;
      • love;
      • fostering of life skills;
      • food security;
      • access to mental health and crisis supports
With your help, we can maintain the safety net that these young individuals rely on for a chance to thrive. Let’s create change together– your kindness can be the key to someone’s brighter future. Donate now and be part of something truly impactful.
