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; access detox; and much more. Together, we can support Vancouver’s most vulnerable youth so they are empowered to begin building the lives they want.
