When a youth is in crisis, it's hard for them to know who to turn to. And when the people they should be able to count on are the ones putting them at risk, it's even harder. Through our Youth Shelter program, we provide a safe space for young people who have nowhere else to go and provide them with the resources they need to find their way through tough times.
Street Culture Project's 15-bed Emergency Youth Shelter, Tuhk Sih Nowin, provides short-term accommodation and support for 16 to 18-year-olds in emergency-crisis situations. The Tuhk Sih Nowin Shelter ensures that all basic physical AND social needs are met so that at-risk youth can get out of crisis mode and begin rebuilding their lives with the support they need. Our youth shelter provides a safe and secure environment for youth when they need it most.
When you donate to the Tuhk Sih Nowin Youth Shelter, you're helping young people at risk get the resources they need to succeed in life.
Your donations provide food, shelter, clothing, connections, opportunities and dignity—all the things that make a difference in the lives of young people who are facing tremendous challenges. Without the help of our community, these young people are at significant risk of becoming another statistic. With your support, we can make sure that doesn't happen. When you contribute to our Youth Shelter, you empower kids to feel safe, make healthy choices, and, most importantly, feel hopeful about creating a brighter future. Together, we can make a huge difference in the lives of these young people.
SCP’s Emergency Youth Shelter fosters a safe and supportive environment where youth can not only meet their basic physical needs (e.g. food, warmth, clothing, shelter, hygiene) but also address their social needs to effectively make positive changes in their lives.
Art provides a casual approach to opening into a relationship with at-risk youth by tapping into their creativity. Offering a form of communication that gives them a sense of control.
Sports and arts can have significant positive impacts on youth social connectedness, better developmental outcomes, improved mental health and recovery from trauma.
In order to provide a safe, stable, comfortable place for these kids to come home to anytime, we will need to install much-needed updates specifically new windows that do not leak.
