The Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa (YSB) serves homeless and street-involved young people 365 days of the year. The holidays can be a difficult time for young people in YSB’s programs who have experienced homelessness. Youth living in our Emergency Youth Shelters and our Long-Term Housing can especially feel lonely and forgotten. That’s why the generous contribution made by Christmas Cheer is so immensely appreciated – their gift provides youth in our Community Services and Programs with warm holiday meals, along with the opportunity for youth living alone to purchase grocery items they need over the holidays. Christmas Cheer’s support makes the holidays bright for homeless youth in our care.
