On Wednesday April 5th, I had the opportunity of attending Cover Me Urban a fundraising event for Youth Without Shelter as a guest of Tangerine Bank.
The event was held to raise money and awareness about Ending homelessness…one youth at a time, one step at a time.
About Youth Without Shelter
Youth Without Shelter (YWS) is an emergency residence and referral agency serving homeless youth who are dedicated to providing shelter and support programs for homeless youth ages 16-24 and provide an independent shelter, committed to diverse client focused services, in a safe, nonjudgmental supportive environment. Their programs enable youth to live responsibly and independently in society.
Frustrated with the lack of safe, emergency housing and support programs for their students, in 1986 a group of teachers and guidance counsellors created Youth without Shelter. Since that time YWS has helped more than 15,000 homeless youth to build their confidence and life-skills and to find long-term stable housing and jobs. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they are dedicated to providing getting youth off the streets permanently by providing shelter and support programs in a safe environment.
