Youth Without Shelter

When no one is expecting them home, we are. No matter where they come from or what they’ve been through they’re welcome here at Youth Without Shelter. On Giving Tuesday, we invite you to drop by our place without leaving yours! Visit www.welcomehomeyws.ca to meet some of the amazing people who help make our house a home.

Youth Without Shelter (YWS) is Etobicoke’s singular emergency residence and referral agency for homeless youth ages 16 to 24.  YWS is dedicated to the future of our youth providing shelter and support programs for youth experiencing homelessness.  YWS goes above basic needs to elevate, encourage and support through empowering programs:  33 bed Emergency Residential Program; Life Skills & Employment Program; Housing and After-Care Program; Educational Outreach Program; and a long-term transitional 20 bed Stay in School Program. 

A warm blanket and a pillow or dinner out for two? $50 will provide one youth with a warm blanket and a pillow as they seek refuge in a safe, welcoming bedroom at Youth Without Shelter.  Tonight there will be up to 2,000 youth seeking a safe place to call home for the night. Over 63% of these young people will have experienced childhood trauma and abuse.
