About Youth in Transition

Youth in Transition has been working in the community for over 25 years addressing housing needs of homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 – 19. With help from community members like you, we:

  • Provide safe and supportive housing for dozens of homeless youth each year
  • Help at-risk youth gain the social and personal supports required for independent living
  • Facilitate personal growth and life-skills training through in-house programs, and through positive role-modeling and mentorship
  • Conduct individualized case plans and refer residents to outside resources and community partners as needed

About John Howard Society of Fredericton

On February 22nd, Youth in Transition and The John Howard Society of Fredericton are once again hosting the Coldest Night of the Year, a 2, 5 and 10 km winter walk hosted in over 140 cities across Canada in support of the hungry, homeless and hurting.


For individuals who have experienced homelessness, the pathway out of this cycle can be extremely challenging. In 2010, the John Howard Society of Fredericton completed construction of 12 new affordable housing units specifically designated to house chronically and episodically homeless individuals. While this project has been incredible successful (seeing an 83% reduction in emergency and institutional service use, such as, police, ambulance, hospital, justice system interventions, etc… As of 2017 we have grown to 20 affordable housing units and have started constructing an additional four units opening in early 2019.
