YSB’s SleepOUT for Youth
This year in Ottawa alone, more than 1,000 young people will spend the coldest, darkest, and harshest months of the year with no place to call home. On December 6, 2018, join the Youth Services Bureau (YSB), and hundreds of community leaders at TD Place Stadium, for YSB’s SleepOUT for Youth. All funds raised from this incredible event will go to support life-changing programs and services for homeless youth. Visit sleepout.ysb.ca to learn more.
Mind Matters, formally known as Moms for Mental Health, provides practical information and guidance to parents, family members and the community and highlights the youth mental health services and other programs offered by YSB. Participating in this event is a great opportunity to learn powerful communication skills and to support YSB and our youth.
