Help Change My City Alliance (HCMC Alliance) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the pursuit of lasting positive change in the lives of multi-barriered (at risk) or homeless youth within Metro Vancouver. The organization’s mission is to empower young people through mentorship, character building, and advanced skill training. HCMC Alliance is committed to equipping youth with employment skills leading to a better and more sustainable future for themselves.

The youth that HCMC Alliance serves need compassion, guidance, and mentorship to help develop them into accomplished and contributing adults. Metro Vancouver has an increasing number of youth who face social barriers that inhibit the opportunities available to them. These youth can easily fall victim to said social barriers which at times may lead to loss of self-value or increased potential for incarceration. The number of youth facing these challenges is increasing and the resources available from the current community organizations are strained.

The programs offered at HCMC Alliance aim to help youth understand their value and develop meaningful relationships with mentors. Using guidance, mentors help them discover life goals and aspirations that will direct their course to fulfill their life purpose. Mentors work alongside youth collaboratively to help develop them wholistically in all the key areas of life. For youth looking for employment we equip them with skills that help them reach their goals of having good work ethic and gainful employment while improving their future, familial ties, and beginning to live out a more positive social impact.

The heart of the organization is to support our youth as friends and family as they begin to stand on their own two feet, overcome life obstacles, and celebrate in their accomplishments. HCMC Alliance welcomes the support of those willing to stand alongside our vision in supporting our youth together.
