We assist vulnerable young people to find and maintain appropriate housing, address physical and mental health issues, and establish successful relationships and support networks.
With determination in the face of adversity and support and advocacy from Phoenix House, Kate achieved remarkable personal and academic results despite experiencing homelessness in the final years of high school.
Reducing the challenges and
barriers young people face
BYS helped me with many problems I faced over the years, pushing me out of my comfort zone and into a new way of life that will benefit me for years to come. They provided me with housing and a safe place to call home, a friendly face to talk to in troubling times, alcohol and drugs support that helped me to become sober and transform my relationships with substances, and counselling that led me on the path of self-healing and allowed wide opportunity for self-growth.
