Choices for Youth Orange Door Award
Choices for Youth recently received a $25,000 Orange Door Award grant to help prevent and end youth homelessness in Canada. The grant comes from the Home Depot Canada Foundation.
I am happy to rise to congratulate Choices for Youth for the invaluable work they do in the district of St. John’s East–Quidi Vidi and across the St. John’s metro region. The grant will support the organization’s Youth Leadership Council, a group of young people who work to break down barriers for youth.
Choices for Youth is a non-profit, charitable, community-based agency that provides housing and lifestyle development supports to youth, operating ten core programs to support over one thousand young people each year in the St. John’s metro region.
Choices for Youth is one of eight recipients across Canada of this grant.
Congratulations to Choices for Youth. I ask all honourable members to join me in thanking them for the vital work they do for at-risk youth.
