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!
Pictou County Roots for Youth is committed to ending youth homelessness in our community. We serve youth aged 16-24 and operate a 4-bed shelter that provides temporary accommodation. We are committed to helping youth end their homelessness permanently, and work through a 4-step process with each young person to that end.
We currently operate a transition house for young women so youth leaving Roots can have access to safe and affordable housing while rebuilding their lives and continuing to make use of the supports available through our staff and programs.
As we strive to keep youth in our Shelter safe from COVID-19, we are providing direct services to youth where they're at.
