Queen’s University and Queen’s Project on International Development (QPID) are honoured to participate once again in 5 Days for Homelessness in support of the Kingston Youth Shelter. We aim to raise awareness and stop the stigma surrounding youth homelessness, while raising donations for the Kingston Youth Shelter, an emergency housing shelter for youth between the ages of 16-24 in unstable housing situations. Donations will be collected before, during, and after the week of March 5th-10th, 2017, and will have a long, lasting impact of those affected by homelessness.
