Covenant Foundation assists with funding a host of programs and equipment purchases across all of our sites.
Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth
Each week, two groups of Grade 9 students from Edmonton & area visit the Misericordia Community Hospital for a multi-media reality-education
event that makes the consequences of risk-taking activities very real. The P.A.R.T.Y. Program is about making 'SMART Choices' that save lives.
This full day in-house program consists of video presentations, experiential exercises and demonstrations by emergency room personnel, police officers and injury survivors. The professionals talk to students about their roles, experiences, and frustrations - the reality of trauma. The program also allows students to hear from injury-survivors who don't pull any punches - they just tell it as it is so students can understand the devastating consequences of risky choices.
From eating lunch as a quadriplegic to a profound interaction with injury survivors, students participate in this interactive program that drives home the message.

Building awareness of the need for sustaining existing programs, establishing new ones is a trademark aim of Covenant Foundation and made possible through our sponsors and donors.
With the rising cost of health care equipment, we assist in the purchase of new enhanced products to complement or replace existing items. From hospital beds to walkers, we work with care providers to ensure funds donated go to the equipment most essential for health care providers and which would provide best results for patients and their families.
