Event overview

We are pleased to be hosting the 15th annual Kids Help Phone Homes for the Holidays this year in Vancouver Westside and West Vancouver. Homes for the Holidays is seasonal self-guided home tour and fundraiser that has become an annual tradition, with attendees coming from near and far.

Top professional designers team up with home décor retailers and florists to adorn five beautiful homes in Vancouver and two luxurious bonus homes in West Vancouver — in styles ranging from contemporary to traditional to modern — with unique displays of holiday decorating that promise to inspire the festive spirit and help make your holiday season memorable.

Local homeowners, designers, retail stores and countless volunteers generously give their time and talent to make this event a huge success. We would like to thank each and every one of them for their support.

We invite you to come explore the endless décor possibilities for your holiday decorating while supporting kids across Canada.

Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7 national service offering bilingual (English and French) professional counselling, information and referrals and volunteer-led, text-based support to young people. Since 1989, Kids Help Phone has shown up for youth in distress. As an organization that speaks with young people every day, Kids Help Phone works to share their perspectives and improve their emotional health and well-being. Kids Help Phone is a registered Canadian charity and we raise a majority of our revenue from individuals, foundations, corporations and community fundraising.



Thank you for your interest. Please check back soon for 2019 ticket information.

Here are a few important details to remember for the tour:

  • Bags will be provided for each individual on the tour to use for footwear. Please wear shoes/boots that are easy to slip on/off.
  • To ensure the privacy of our homeowners, we kindly ask that individuals do not take photos at any time during the tour.
  • The homes are numbered on the ticket, but please feel free to visit them in whichever order you prefer.
  • The homes are not wheelchair accessible.
  • Washrooms within the homes are NOT for public use. Please plan accordingly.
  • The event is best suited for ages 13 and above.

Homes for the Holidays is only one of the many initiatives we coordinate each year. The success of this event depends largely on its volunteers.

If you are interested in featuring your home on a future tour or you have a flair for design and would like to volunteer some of your time to assist with decorating, please let us know! We have several other events to choose from as well if you are looking for more ways to support the young people in your community.
