Module Info:

Presenter: Les Talvio, The Cyrus Centre

“Everything I have is in this back pack; I can’t go home, my mom doesn’t want me, in fact, she won’t speak to me anymore, and couch surfing has worn out. Where do I go? Is that park safe to sleep at? What about that boarded-up house; can I find refuge there? Maybe under the bridge?

I am SO alone!”

Youth across the Fraser Valley and up the Fraser Canyon face this dilemma each and every night. Nationally, 1 in 5 homeless persons is a youth; locally, those numbers have been higher. Many are fleeing abuse, poverty, exploitation and drugs. Youth on the streets are 40 times more likely to die

dedicated to vulnerable and homeless youth. Les Talvio describes the struggle for survival faced by homeless and “aged out of care” young adults in the community around UFV.
