Wilfrid Laurier University
Welcome to the 5 Days for the Homeless 2018 campaign! 5 Days for the Homeless is a campaign dedicated to students supporting youth at risk. We are dedicated to increasing awareness and abolishing the negative stigmas that those experiencing homelessness face each and every day. Our 2018 campaign is encouraging Wilfrid Laurier and surrounding communities to open doors for youth experiencing homelessness.
In addition to raising awareness, our campaign also fundraises donations that go towards two local shelters, ONERoof and Argus Residence for Young People. These shelters have multi-dimensional rehabilitation programs that focus on mental health, employment, adequate housing and give individuals an opportunity to break the cycle of experiencing homelessness.
We are so excited for you to learn about our campaign here at Wilfrid Laurier University!
