Back to School

Back to School

It’s that time again! Time to get back in gear for a brand new school season.
Although many kids are buzzing in anticipation to start a new semester, others may be facing challenges that could prevent them from attending school entirely this year. The dropout rate is significantly higher for youth facing homelessness then for students in stable living, and graduation rates are significantly lower. With our Stay in School program, we focus on assisting our resident youth in reaching their educational goals in post secondary and college and university courses. We thank you for your support over the years, whether it be through fundraising or donating school supplies and clothing. Your contributions make a HUGE difference for our youth!

Youth Without Shelter makes the Top 100 Charity List with MoneySense

MoneySense has released its annual Top 100 Charity List to assist donors in making informed decisions during the busy 2019 holiday season.  Youth Without Shelter is one of those charities – and is recognized as the top charity in the youth category.  The ranking is based upon financial transparency (both fundraising and charity) and social results transparency (how donations are being used to create impact, and the sharing of that story).
