Dispelling Myths About Youth Experiencing Homelessness
This video aims to dispel myths associated with youth homelessness in an effort to change negative perceptions.
Since 1985, Argus has provided emergency shelter to youth between the ages of 16-24 who are experiencing homelessness in our community. The agency operates two 24 hour shelter locations; a 10-bed shelter for young women and a 15-bed shelter for young men. Argus is unique in the Waterloo Region due to our ability to amalgamate the essential services of food, shelter and 24-hour staff support with a comprehensive life-skills acquisition program which works to mobilize our youth toward healthy and viable community integration. Our goal is to equip young people with the tools they need in order to thrive.
