5th annual Homeward Walk•Run

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

Youth homelessness is a real and pressing problem, impacting our community, bringing with it 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.



Register as an individual or team (registration coming soon)! Spread the word and raise funds to help reach the goal of ending youth homelessness in Edmonton.

Please join us at the 2017 Indigenous Gathering, Wednesday March 29. We are so grateful Jesse Thistle is joining us as our keynote speaker. As well as working on his PhD, he is also the National Representative for Indigenous Homelessness for the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness.
And...CBC's Ideas aired his story Thursday night:

The Gathering is a place to come together as a community, share our knowledge, and speak to experiences of urban Indigenous housing and homelessness. It’s an opportunity for dialogue and identifying key priorities as a community, with the vision of developing an Indigenous Housing Strategy for Edmonton.
