If you could talk to our kids, what would you say?
The Roommates Program is an opportunity for individual donors and groups to support youth facing difficult realities by providing both funding and moral support.
You can support the kids at YESS by funding a room – and we have a lot of them! Some organizations choose to fund family spaces, like the kitchens or living rooms in Shanoa's & Graham's Place, while others choose to join the donor wall in our Nexus shelter. The Roommates Program is also an opportunity to memorialize a loved one or honour a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.
Donors are invited to provide an inspirational quote or message to post outside of their chosen room or on the donor wall in the Nexus shelter. These messages let our kids see - literally - that there are people out there who care about them and want to support them. If you could talk to our kids, what message would you want to send?
All contributions to our Roommates program are tax receiptable.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact our Donor Relations & Philanthropy team:
