The Kennedy House Youth Shelter is a 40 bed facility located at 1076 Pape Avenue in East York, making us the only youth shelter in the east end of Toronto.
Through our shelter, we provide a safe living environment for youth ages 16-24 who have complex needs and are experiencing homelessness. We address the many issues and causes of homelessness by offering programming that helps the youth stay healthy as well as access jobs, permanent housing, clothing and other supplies that will assist them as they transition to a successful future.
