Youth Homelessness: an integrated, collaborative approach

RGizzarelli 4Our Executive Director, Rocco Gizzarelli, wrote this article that appeared in The Hamilton Spectator on September 12, 2017, about youth homelessness and the need for an integrated, collaborative approach.

We are proud to be the lead agency for the Youth Housing Support Project, in partnership with the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton, Good Shepherd Youth Services, Living Rock Ministries, and Wesley Urban Ministries — Wesley Youth Services. Through this project, over 630 youth have obtained and maintained safe and stable housing. This is something to be proud of, but as the article says, solving the problem of youth homelessness will require increased action on the part of government, communities, and all social services that impact children and youth.
