It can often be intimidating for children and youth to adjust to the idea of being without a home to call their own.

At our shelters, we understand the unique needs of children and youth who are at our shelters.  Our objective is to run programs that are fun, active, build a strong sense of self esteem, and encourage our young residents to lead whole and healthy lives.  From trips to local community centres and playing team sports, offering school lunches and snacks, reading and homework club, art therapy and yoga, to hosting monthly birthday parties for the children, we facilitate programs that build on the strengths of the children and youth.
