Help the Y raise $10,000 today and make the holidays possible!

For many of us, the holiday season is a time of joy and celebration. But for the 3,000+ GTA youth without a safe place to sleep each night, it can feel just as challenging – if not more so – as every other time of year.

This Giving Tuesday, the YMCA GTA is committed to bringing a smile to young people’s faces in spite of the countless barriers they’re navigating. You can help! Your gift today will help purchase culturally-appropriate holiday meals and gifts of essential items for unhoused youth.



You can help young people find what they need to thrive – all under one roof.

Whether it’s equipping a young person with new boots and a coat or giving them a gift card to help offset the cost of groceries and transportation, you can make the holidays possible for youth who would otherwise go without.

DON’T MISS your chance to help brighten the season for unhoused youth this Giving Tuesday! Make your holiday contribution before time runs out!

YES! I will help youth experiencing homelessness access vital supports and services.


Help your neighbours find a brighter future by supporting the Y.

In bed

From youth experiencing homelessness or substance use challenges to people trying desperately to find a job and make ends meet, our community's most vulnerable are relying on the Y for help. Donor support allows us to offer key housing, mental health, and employment supports for those in need - including people navigating the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community.

You can make a significant difference in the lives of individuals at-risk. Together, we can pave the way to brighter futures and strengthen our community.
