Crisis Program Updates

New Space
New Space

The young women at our short-term housing Crisis Program moved into our new building on Seymour Street. The women's Crisis Program staff planned a warm welcome celebration with decorations, cakes, candles and cheers. The youth are very happy to have this new, safe place to live. The youth have commented that they are most excited about the private showers and access to wifi. 

 

Since moving into the new building, we were able to add 4 more beds, increasing our capacity from 24 beds to 28, serving even more young women in the Crisis Program. Since splitting out the program by gender in 2014, we've seen a 200% increase in the young women accessing our care, with the demand continuing to rise. 

 

We are still in the midst of building more capacity for both male and female-identified spaces. With 235 youth turned away last year, we need more space to meet the demand of services. When the second building is complete, our capacity will increase by 70% to provide the best possible care to the youth who need it most.
