About Pictou County Roots for Youth Society

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.


In September 2017 we opened 2 transition houses 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.


We also open our house daily from 4:30 to 8 PM so that ANY young person can eat, get online, do laundry, grab a shower, and find a sympathetic listening ear.
