Everything changes when you house homeless youth.
It’s THE opportunity to stop the cycle of homelessness into adulthood!



Help house and support homeless youth in Ottawa.
Donate to YSB’s Stay Up Ottawa initiave.

 

This year in Ottawa, more than 1400 young people will face the coldest, darkest, and harshest months of the year with no place to call home. Sadly, the winter months are not the only battle for youth experiencing homelessness in Ottawa. Many are suffering from trauma, mental health issues, poverty, addiction, and other challenges that contribute to homelessness.
Housing a young person is THE opportunity to stop the cycle of homelessness into adulthood. Thank you for choosing to support the Youth Services Bureau’s (YSB) Stay Up Ottawa initiative to support young people in our shelters and housing buildings. Learn more at www.stayupottawa.ca and www.ysb.ca.

Together, we have the opportunity to stop the cycle of youth homeless into adulthood!

" I’ve always struggled with anxiety. Maybe because both my parents do too. Things were always toxic and chaotic at home and I got kicked out. YSB’s shelter has been my Home, and my community.”
Kelly, YSB shelter resident
