So many of us take for granted the knowledge that we can go home after a long day
For all too many youth in our city, that’s just not reality. The numbers are staggering: more than 1,000 youth in Ottawa are homeless. YSB offers the only youth shelter beds in the city; and when our 60 spaces fill up, we continue to take youth in. Our shelters operate at 106% capacity.
Celebrate the life of a loved one through a memorial donation or in honour of an extraordinary person in your life, a special anniversary or birthday. Your gift in honour will enable YSB to continue offering the important programs and services that homeless youth need to rebuild their lives and move into stable adulthoods – something every young person deserves.
