Background

 

 

 

Watari was created in 1986 as a response to the lack of services and programs available for high-risk street involved youth in Vancouver. Since then, Watari has helped thousands of people in the Downtown Eastside and the surrounding communities. Consistently advocating for vulnerable people, Watari has had a large and lasting positive impact on the community.
