Our goal is to raise $2,000,000 to build a new emergency youth shelter in downtown Barrie

Youth Haven’s current emergency shelter is dated and beyond repair. There are over 600 youth in
Simcoe County between the ages of 16 -24 that rely on Youth Haven for support every year for
emergency shelter, transitional housing and outreach services.

The Numbers that matter

Now, more than ever, we need your help to build a new emergency shelter. We can’t do this alone. Please join us in choosing to #bethedifference in building brighter futures together.
