Over the past few years we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of street-involved youth. In an effort to address this growing problem, HYFC created a new outreach program.
The Door @ Street Level is an extension of the services of our youth centre, going out to the community with the intent to care for street-involved youth. We help to connect them with the resources they need to make informed decisions about their safety, lifestyle, physical, emotional and spiritual health, and to help them resolve any risk of homelessness.
Street Level teams build relationships with teens by providing basic needs — food, water, clothing and other necessities of life. As we provide for their needs, we help them restore relationships with their families and get them back home, or into a safe place to spend the night. It is our hope that by providing for their physical needs, we can share the love of Christ and offer guidance for their spiritual needs as well.
