Working with young people is as challenging as it is rewarding! Our LSS Youth workers support the healthy development of youth, provide supportive shelter and housing options for youth experiencing homelessness, work to restore and strengthen families, and help set youth on a path to success. Youth workers provide a positive relationship with a caring adult that youth can view as an ongoing resource and advocate to positively impact their life.
