Youth Haven is Simcoe County’s only youth shelter, providing emergency and transitional housing to all youth between 16 and 24. We offer many services, including case management, counselling, life skills, housing and employment support, medical visits, meals and care packages, clothes, and the care of talented, passionate staff and volunteers.
This is why we walk. We walk to raise awareness of the needs of our at-risk youth, of the experience they endure every day walking through the cold in search of shelter, and of the growing numbers in our community every year who need help.
We walk to bring our community together. To give us an opportunity to experience that walk for ourselves, and to take action to help support the health and hope of our young people.
So join us at Youth Haven, and together let’s walk together to provide them with a brighter future.
