Very proud to announce the Government of Canada’s $7.9 million investment in A Way Home aimed at preventing youth homelessness & tackling barriers to employment. The project, Making the Shift: Reimagining the response to youth homelessness through social innovation, is a concrete example of what we can achieve for youth by working in partnership with organizations across the country.
Projects like this can give our youth the chance to change their future. Over 1,300 youth and their families will participate in the project, which will be delivered by a partnership between A Way Home: Working Together to End Youth Homelessness, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (York University), the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, the provinces of Ontario and Alberta and dozens of community partners.
