Join Homeward Trust for our 5th annual Homeward Walk•Run

Together we can reach the finish line: ending youth homelessness in YEG

In Edmonton, youth homelessness is a real and pressing problem, impacting our community across many fronts, bringing with it a great financial and even greater human cost.

Homelessness does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or family background. But everyone who experiences homelessness has a story. We want to give voice to those stories and help youth become their best selves. We know that it starts with meeting their basic needs – shelter, food, safety, love.
