On Monday November 18th, 2019 we’re spending one night outside placing us in a vulnerable situation to raise awareness for youth in need.
Our philanthropic mission is based on the following statistics provided by the charitable groups we support and we hope our fundraising efforts will help prevent and reduce the number of youth who are suffering.
On any given night there are between 500 and 1000 young people living on the streets in the Lower Mainland.
Many youths are re-victimized on the streets, having fled one unsafe situation only to find another.
Families in our Province are raising children with special needs and limited support.
Children in our communities are going to school hungry, without proper self-care resources.
Providing love and hope to Vancouver's homeless and at-risk street youth. We help young people aged 16 to 24 who have fled physical, emotional and sexual abuse; those who have been forced from their homes; and those who have aged out of foster care.
Youth Unlimited helps young people discover their potential. From prevention to helping kids on the margins, their dedicated staff and relevant programming offer connection and transformation fostering mental, physical, social, spiritual and emotional well-being among young people in our community.
