About Central Alberta Youth Unlimited/​YFC

According to The National Youth Homelessness Survey, "Young people aged 13-24 make up about 20% of those experiencing homelessness in Canada.” That is approximately 35,000-40,000 young people a year and 6,000-7,000 who are looking for a safe place to sleep tonight.


Let that sink in for a minute.


I don’t know about you, but this information breaks my heart and beyond that, I find it disturbing. How can this be? What has happened in these young lives that causes them to be without housing?


Central Alberta Youth Unlimited and YU-Turn Youth Housing existed to eliminate just this. The YU-Turn Home is a skill development program for young people ages 16-24 who require, and desire support and encouragement to become holistically healthy, fully independent, community contributors.


You can be a part of this, joining our campaign to raise $35,000 to help move one youth from homeless to home.
