About Youth Without Shelter:
Youth Without Shelter (YWS) is the singular emergency residence and referral agency in Etobicoke serving and supporting homeless youth ages 16 to 24 for three decades.

YWS not only provides safety and security for youth, but has evolved to provide a wrap-around model of supports for more than 1,000 youth annually. It includes counselling, effective life skills programs, employment guidance. Plus, placement in affordable housing and support for continued education. YWS empowers youth facing homelessness to reach their individual potential.
YWS was recognized on the Top 100 Charities in Canada 2019 List by MoneySense. It ranks #1 in the Youth Category for financial and social results transparency.
