Youth homelessness is rising in Canada. As housing becomes unaffordable to many individuals, we find that homelessness has increased substantially. There are many young adults and children forced to live on the street due to numerous circumstances. This, in turn, places these individuals in situations where they are often trafficked.
Covenant House is is the largest agency in Canada helping homeless and trafficked youth. It is a shelter that I support whole-heartedly. As such, I organized a food drive at work and delivered two car loads of food to the shelter.
It was amazing giving to the shelter. The gratefulness and appreciation of the staff and social workers brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you so much for having me Covenant House,
Your Miss South Central Ontario.
