Alouette Home Start Society

Route 29: The Road Home

Imagine facing the transition from adolescence to adulthood while, at the same time, struggling just to survive because you don’t have a home. The 2011 Homeless Count found 29 homeless youth in Maple Ridge. Over three years, this project will find and improve youth access to housing and build connections and continuing relationships with youth aged 17 to 24. Each youth will be supported in their own unique journey to maturity and to becoming healthy, happy people, with a secure home and the capacity to keep it.
