Event description

Description

On every given night, about 8,000 people in Canada are homeless and young people aged 13 to 24 make up about 20% of that homeless population.
Every year in Ontario, about 800 to 1,000 youth “age out” of care as they turn18.
90% of youths that aged out of care were on welfare within 6 months of aging out. Only 44% of those Crown Wards, as they are named, go on to complete high school (vs 81% in the general population).
Closer home here in the Halton Region, 264 people were documented as homeless in a 2016 study and of that number, 46 of them had been in some form of institutional or foster care.

In direct response to this dire situation, Oasis Youth Care Programs -a faith-based and nonprofit organization, is established to provide transitional housing and wrap-around support services to vulnerable and at-risk youth aging out of care around the Halton/Peel Region of Ontario. Founded on Biblical principles and pristine Christian values, our motivation is to provide transformational services that are, at its core, Christ-centered.

Over the past year, a small number of passionate community members, including me, making up the Board of Directors have committed ideas, time and resources to the startup of this organization. We have secured non-profit status, incorporated in the Ontario Province, held regular Board meetings, created a strategic plan and are now ready to open the first Oasis Home by June 2019.
Please see our website for more details - www.oasisyouthcare.com

With a planned budget of about $136,850 in the first year, we are counting on the support of community members to make this cause a sustained success.
Please consider supporting us in any of the following ways:

  • Promote the mission and purpose of Oasis Youth Care Programs in your network.
  • Invite others to become involved with our programs in a way that is meaningful to them.
  • Recognize and grow partnerships and support relationships to help our funding goals.
  • Donate funds to our organization for the cause of reducing Youth Homelessness

I am very excited about the opportunities ahead for Oasis Youth Care Programs and its work on reducing youth homelessness. Your contributions would be invaluable.

Please respond at your earliest convenience as we look forward to your support.
