Homeward Walk|Run

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 on June 16th, 2019 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!
