Homeward Walk|Run 2018

Sunday June 17, 2018 at Whitemud Park

Together we can reach the finish line: ending youth homelessness!

"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, love.

Youth homelessness is a real and pressing problem in our community. We know that youth experiencing homelessness regularly face physical, emotional/sexual abuse, neglect and traumas. This is unacceptable!

With the support of programs offered at e4c, Edmonton John Howard Society, iHuman Youth Society and Youth Empowerment & Support Services (YESS), we as a community can prevent youth homelessness!
