Durham Youth Services


Our Mission

Provide programs for at-risk and homeless youth in the Durham Region to prevent homelessness, provide shelter and other opportunities that will support their success and end the stigma of homelessness.

Our Vision

To end youth homelessness in the Durham Region.


All homeless people, regardless of age, have one thing in common – a lack of permanent affordable housing.

There Is A Solution...

and you can help.

At Durham Youth Services (DYS) we focus on solutions: we are working on expanding the services we offer, from our emergency shelter to transitional housing to outreach services for prevention and early intervention for youth.
