Help Me, Help Local Homeless Men, Women and Children - All Funds Raised Stay Local! This is personal as I have seen as a nurse, many homeless and at-risk young people. We, as a society need to help these young people before their lives get worse. The Covid situation has made it even more difficult for young people to get the support they so desperately need. Please help them by donating to this cause. Hockey CAN help the homeless...help me to help them!
In York Region, it is estimated that 300 to 500 youth between the ages of 13 to 24 are homeless on any given night, but together we can change this statistic. On December 10th, I will be participating in the Hockey Helps the Homeless York Region Tournament, raising awareness and funding for 360°Kids and Blue Door, two local youth support agencies right here in York Region.
There’s more than one story when it comes to how people end up homeless and that’s why there is more than one way to help. Hockey Helps the Homeless invests in solutions that ensure fewer individuals and families end up on the streets. We support organizations and programs committed to ending homelessness through housing, transportation initiatives, mental health support, education, health and wellness, training and employment, but we need your help.
Be a game changer today by supporting the cause and help bring hope to our most vulnerable!
