About First United

First United Church Community Ministry Society has been serving in the Downtown Eastside for over 125 years, offering programs of advocacy, hospitality, housing and healing.


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 60 people, serve 500 plates of food, and provide drop-in services for 500 people. Every year we provide legal advocacy for over 1700 individuals, complete over 3500 tax returns for low income earners and offer footcare to over 4000 people. Our other programs include storage, spiritual care, seniors social groups, emergency clothing and Aboriginal cultural programs.


Every day, we walk with the inspiring people of the Downtown Eastside, supporting them with the resources they need to move beyond homelessness. We welcome you to walk with us to show support for this community.
