Choices for Youth

 

Choices for Youth is a multi-service provider for homeless youth in St John’s Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

Their goal is to have empowerment-based programs available to youth for whom “home” is not an option. They provide stable and age-appropriate support systems to vulnerable young people during periods of transition in their lives.

 

MAZON Canada supports their outreach meal program offering a hot lunch. This is a way of attracting homeless youth and often serves as the first point of contact to draw them in to be able to engage with social workers, gain referrals to additional in-house programs and have a nutritious meal, all within a safe, supportive and community-minded space. Assuaging their hunger is a way of starting to address other, inter-related aspects of their vulnerability.
