2016 Christmas Project - Cyrus Centre
Youth across the Fraser Valley and up the Fraser Canyon face this dilemma each and every night. Nationally, 1 in 5 homeless persons is a youth; locally, those numbers have been higher. Many are fleeing abuse, poverty, exploitation and drugs. Youth on the streets are 40 times more likely to die, however, if we can reach them within the first two years, their chances for survival and success are greatly improved.
Cyrus Centre is equipped to intervene immediately, to provide youth with a way out and a way off the streets. Our `Roofs 4 Youth’ program provides emergency shelter, and our `Streets 2 Home’ programming provides meals, clothing, advocacy, school, counselling, referrals, life-skills training and so much more!
Broadway’s goal is to reach $15,000 to help provide 4 new beds for the Centre.
