Event description

Description

In recognition of World Homelessness Day, we are inviting the business community to a strategic discussion on innovative ways to strengthen our community by investing in youth, particularly those facing barriers to housing and employment. Hear from youth, local businesses and other organizations about partnerships that have been successful.

Why is this important? In York Region today, youth aged 16 - 24 years of age are overrepresented in York Region's homeless population. Youth homelessness is often the result of many factors, such as family breakdown, lack of affordable housing, poor mental and physical health, and can have a significant economic impact on communities.

The good news is that across York region many people are recognizing the need to approach things differently, because the cost of inaction is too high and there are practical ways to address this - but we need your help!
