How The Home Depot Canada Foundation is helping put an end to youth homelessness with “Paper Doors”

The first step is to get someone a roof over their head. Whether it be in the Barbara Weider House or to link them with housing services, they need to be safe and inside for the night.

Homelessness is a serious problem in our communities. Research shows that Youth homelessness has reached epic proportions. There are many reasons that Youth are in a situation of being homeless. This could be due to being kicked out of their home, disagreements at home, parents moving away, addictions and mental health issues, parent abandonment and having nowhere else to go.

Home Horizon helps this vulnerable population to re-establish their lives through our program of transitional housing and personal support and become our future generation of strong independent individuals.


Temporary Housing

In our program, youth are provided temporary housing while they work on goals to help them build their future. Youth come to us with many challenges and are offered a variety of life skills, resources supports, supports with new ventures and are given the chance to learn how to navigate the systems.
