How does YSM Housing Support Services work?

In keeping with our goal of ending chronic poverty, YSM offers Torontonians transitional housing while helping to find a permanent home. YSM works with families and youth aged 16-24 to assess their housing needs. From there, we help them access the right resources to help maintain or find supportive housing in Toronto.

Safety is always a top priority. Ensuring Torontonians have a safe place to live is the first step in helping them to rebuild their lives. No one should ever have to worry about where they’ll stay, which is why we at YSM work with individuals and families to secure shelter.
