Youth Haven is a non-profit organization that operates as an emergency youth shelter. Since 1987 we have served the needs of homeless youth between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one, providing shelter, food, counseling and a safe place to stay for approximately 700 youth per year. When necessary, we act as a liaison between the youth and their families and various social agencies in order to provide the best and most effective options for a youth’s well being. Presently, we offer shelter for 20 youth per night. The length of stay may be as short as one night or more than a month. We require youth who stay for extended periods to be attending school, working or actively seeking employment. We are the only shelter of our kind in Simcoe County and serve a very large and diverse demographic. For more information, click below.
