Housing First for Youth


Housing First For Youth (HF4Y) is a rights-based intervention, grounded in “youth choice and youth voice” for youth who are experiencing or have experienced chronic homelessness. HF4Y Workers offer intense case management, focusing first on helping youth secure housing that is safe and affordable. We connect youth to resources for their mental and physical health, addiction recovery, engagement in education and/or employment, and social inclusion.

Participants in our Housing First for Youth program are referred from the Region of Durham’s By-Name List.
