Supporting homeless youth and the Alexandra Park community.
Support the Y
Our incredible new Vanauley Street YMCA is located at 7 Vanauley Street, near Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue. This 11,400 sq. ft. facility is home to such supportive programs and services for at-risk youth as a drop-in centre, medical and counselling services, as well as an emergency shelter. It also offers employment services for youth and the surrounding Alexandra Park community.
With 66.8% of the homeless population of the City of Toronto located in the Toronto East-York Community Council District (which includes the Kensington/Chinatown neighbourhood), the Y has deepened its impact in this neighbourhood by offering a safe place for people to connect with the programs and services they need to reduce the effects of poverty.
According to the Toronto Street Needs Assessment Survey (2009 / 2013)
