Home Horizon Youth Outreach

September 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Our Your S.A.F.E. outreach program works with additional vulnerable youth to identify safe living spaces and provides direction to assist them in regaining control of their lives. Our S.A.F.E. outreach programs serve youth aged 16-29. Since the launch of this program in July 2020,we have served 127 youth, with over 1085 service interactions (referrals, goalsetting, supplies, workshops, etc.), many in the Wasaga Beach area.

Through our outreach services, we supply important items such as tents, sleeping bags, food, hygiene products, grocery gift cards, masks & sanitizers, jackets, hand warmers, clothes, and much more.

The program also provides support and advocacy for mental health, physical health (new family doctor), legal matters, financial aid, rental/tenant advocacy as well as referrals to other housing agencies.

The program has been an incredible success to date. It helps one of our most vulnerable populations to avoid falling through the cracks, providing every individual who come in contact with our outreach worker the chance to feel safe and heard. We work with all marginalized youth regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, family situations and socio-economic background.

Our programs are designed to assist youth struggling with social inequalities with tools that will help them to cope and grow stronger to manage and address any bias they face in life.
