RESOURCES THEY NEED TO EXCEL.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE…

I WANT TO HELP

THE SOLUTION

THE BRIDGE YOUTH RESOURCE CENTRE

THE NEED

Current estimates suggest there are over 100 youth experiencing homelessness in Leamington every year. Most of these homeless youth live in poverty (local rates higher than provincial average) making it harder to afford housing and get the resources they need to get out of that poverty.

OUR SOLUTION

Located at 302 Sherk Street in Leamington, The Bridge offers a resource center that provides access to employment & educational support, a safe environment to access food, showers, laundry, computers, and recreational activities

DONATION ITEMS NEEDED

OUR WISHLIST

THE SOLUTION

THE BRIDGE YOUTH RESOURCE CENTRE

Support an individual youth for one month, providing the basic necessities
while they find the resources they need to thrive on their own.

Every young person has something they’re good at. When you focus on their strength, then you are able to deal with any underlying issues they may be facing.
