What is it?
The Youth Lodge is a safe and supportive transitional home for male-identified youth who are at risk of homelessness or who face housing instability.
This is a voluntary program for youth aged 16-21. You must be involved with the Ministry of Social Services or have a Young Offender caseworker in order to qualify for the Youth Lodge.
