Youth homelessness is a real and pressing problem that impacts our community. There are 233 homeless independent and dependent youth under 24 years of age in Edmonton. Because youth homelessness is unique from adult homelessness, it requires a different approach. Youth are still developing emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and physically, and they are still learning basic life skills. e4c has partnered with Homeward Trust, YESS, Edmonton John Howard, and iHuman to raise awareness and funds to end youth homelessness.
e4c is a non-profit, charitable organization that has been working for almost 50 years to help vulnerable people here and now. At the same time, we’re working to prevent and eventually eliminate poverty. It’s a big task, but one we know is possible with the help of others who are ready to see the strength we see in the people we serve. Everyone who experiences homelessness has a story. Help us give voice to those stories and help youth become their best selves.
Homeward Trust is excited to bring you the 5th annual Homeward Walk|Run. This year's event features a brand new course starting at Whitemud Park, complete with MORE signage and onsite contests! Get ready to party with DJ Sambou, a post event BBQ and fun for the whole family. You'll walk or run in this time event with 300 enthusiastic participants all running toward the same goal - ending youth homelessness in our community!
