Please join us for a fantastic evening out!


The City of Toronto is one of the wealthiest cities in the world. Nonetheless, we have the largest homeless population in Canada. Up to 40,000 youth face homelessness across Canada with 6,000 – 7,000 seeking a safe place to be sheltered tonight. Up to 2,000 of those youth are from Toronto.

Located in the community of North Etobicoke, YWS provides a safe refuge for youth who – often through circumstances beyond their control – have found themselves without a home to call their own. Demand for our services is increasing. Youth make up the fastest-growing population of homeless people in Canada, and their needs are changing, requiring longer stays and deeper support. The longer youth remain homeless, the greater the negative outcomes. Early intervention is key.

Our goal here at YWS is to empower youth facing homelessness to reach their individual potential. With the help of our community, we aim to end youth homelessness, one youth at a time, one step at a time.
