Today we’re highlighting one specific support we offer to Safehouse youth—one that they receive when they leave. When a youth leaves Safehouse to move into an apartment, we provide them with a Move Out Kit.
These kits contain home basics like cutlery, dishes, and bedding. They’re our way of ensuring that youth get to step into their next chapter with dignity. Youth get to move into a place that immediately can feel like home.
“We always want to empower them,” says Stevie, Youth Worker at Safehouse.
This October, in recognition of Homelessness Action Week, we’re fundraising for more Move Out Kits, as well as all of our our youth-informed initiatives and client-led programs.
