Youth Resource Centre

The Youth Resource Centre (YRC) is committed to providing support and encouragement to youth aged 15 to 19 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness as they work towards independence.  

Our goal is support and help clients reach their goals.  While living at the YRC, clients can expect:

  • Safe Shelter
  • Food
  • Warm Bed
  • Support
  • Structure

The structure of the program, curfews and expectations are to ensure that we are able to provide a safe environment and to help clients learn to navigate the world we live in and achieve success.

YRC has a point system and clients can earn points for attending lifeskills groups, daily check-in’s with staff and meeting weekly with their Counsellor.  Points can be used for later bedtimes to overnight visits.
