Kingston Youth Shelter
Kingston Youth Shelter offers a variety of services to homeless/precariously housed youth between the ages of 16-24. Our services help youth stabilize, grow, develop, and work towards their goals for independent living. We provide youth with the acceptance, empathy, and support that they need in order to transition successfully into young adulthood. At KYS, homeless does not mean hopeless.
Youth who arrive at our doorstep come from all walks of life. There are many factors that may lead to youth homelessness such as: poverty, trauma, abuse, oppression, immigration, mental health, (dis)ability, addictions, or conflict with the law. With guidance from the trained professionals at KYS, youth can overcome these barriers and move on to live happy, healthy lives. Forward Together.
