If youth don’t have a roof over their head, it’s nearly impossible to take care of their mental health, stay focused at work, or plan for the future. It can affect their relationships or leave them without support systems. Drop-in centres and job training programs become vital to supporting homeless youth—helping them build more stable lives.
