About First United

First United Church Community Ministry Society (commonly known as First United) is an inner- city ministry of the United Church of Canada committed at its heart to the struggle for social justice, offering programs of advocacy, housing and healing in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES). In general, we serve adults with complex needs. We have served this community for 135 years, pioneering innovative responses to community needs.


First United serves as both a service hub and community place where people without secure housing can gather to find support, fellowship and a place to belong. Every day we provide shelter for 50 people, and serve 200 plates of food. We serve over 1,700 community members through our legal advocacy clinic, and file over 3,500 individual tax returns for low-income households in Vancouver, putting over $200,000 in benefits back into the hands of those who need it most.
