Youth Without Shelter (YWS) is Etobicoke’s singular emergency residence and referral agency serving homeless youth aged 16-24. At YWS we are committed to stepping far beyond the basics of food and beds.
In 1986 a group of teachers and guidance counselors created YWS as they were frustrated with the lack of safe, emergency housing and support programs for their students. Since that time Youth without Shelter has helped more than 14,000 homeless youth to build their confidence and life-skills and to find long-term stable housing and jobs. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, we are dedicated to providing shelter and support programs in a safe environment, with the goal of getting youth off the streets permanently.
