Give to help youth outplay homelessness
October marks the launch of Dans la rue’s annual fundraising appeal. The campaign highlights the role the organization plays in preventing youth homelessness through a continuum of services that includes the Van, the Bunker, the Day Centre, Family Services and Dans la rue Housing. It is also an opportunity for you to help make a difference.
The path followed by homeless youth does not follow a straight line. Like a game of snakes and ladders, there can be plenty of setbacks along the way, like breaking up with a significant other or losing a job. But there are lots of steps forward, too, such as returning to school. Every day, we are there for them, not only to help when they are at their lowest but also to celebrate their victories. Because we make them feel seen, heard and supported, they can then pick themselves up and get back on track.
Dans la rue is a constant in their lives: we reach out to vulnerable youth, without judging them, and gradually guide them toward greater self-sufficiency.
Your support is vital
For the third year in a row, we are very fortunate to be teaming up with Publicis for this appeal. They are the experts behind the visually striking concept that brings our mission to life with such energy and vibrancy. We also owe a debt of gratitude to our media partners at Quebecor.
Last but certainly not least, a big thank-you goes out to our future donors. Your support is vital to connecting with marginalized youth and keeping them from becoming entrenched in street life.
Join us in equipping them with the tools to put insecurity behind them.
