Together we can reach the finish line: ending youth homelessness.
Edmonton's Dec. 31st, 2018 By Names List showed 316 independent youth
under the age of 25 years old experiencing homelessness. This is unacceptable!
Join us to make a difference for vulnerable youth.
"I know now that there can be hope no matter what you are going through." - EJHS Youth
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, and love.
Youth homelessness is a real and pressing problem in our community. We know that youth experiencing homelessness face physical, emotional/sexual abuse, neglect and traumas. This is unacceptable!
With the support of programs offered at Homeward Trust, e4c, Edmonton John Howard Society, iHuman Youth Society, and Youth Empowerment & Support Services (YESS), we as a community can prevent youth homelessness!
