It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us virtually or in-person on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!
Connect Youth was initiated as a result of a community focus group that involved youth, following the suicide of one of their peers in June 2001. Our goals are to Connect Youth with the appropriate services and programs, from a social development perspective, and to develop programs necessary in partnership with community agencies. These services and programs seek to help youth adjust through difficult periods in their lives, to enable them to reach their full potential and be productive adults in their communities. Connect Youth also offers 5 rural homeless apartments in Leeds & Grenville with an overwhelming demand.
Currently we are working hard to provide service to all young people who seek our help and to create awareness within the community, so that both the youth and those that care about them know that there is a place they can go, and people who can help them cope with their problems.
