Your support helps nearly 1,000 youth a year find safety from the streets.

Directions Youth Services offers a range of programs and services to support youth under the age of 25 who are in crisis, experiencing homelessness, or are precariously housed as a result of abuse, neglect, substance use or mental health challenges. We welcome and serve all youth.


About Directions Youth Services

Our Youth Services Centre on Burrard Street in Vancouver is BC’s only 24/7/365, low-barrier service for youth.

All youth experiencing homelessness are welcome, regardless of their condition, sexual orientation, gender, or anything else. All Directions programs are client-centered, trauma-informed, and non-judgmental.

Your support helps over 1,000 youth per year find safety from the streets; eat hot meals; receive medical care; find long-term housing; and much more. Together, we can support Vancouver’s most vulnerable youth so they are empowered to begin building the lives they want.
