2020 Emergency Community Support Fund Round 2 Grant recipient.
A flooded basement is not an ideal location to house homeless youth, in fact it presents an unsafe environment and one in which physical distancing is not a possibility. This grant allows us to address health and safety issues, and physical renovations to support our mission of offering an alternative to living on the street. We understand the need is great and hope to expand access for 6 additional youth and support our clients in their transition to a more productive and brighter future.
