Sasha Bruce

A Commitment to Youth

At Sasha Bruce, we believe that a youth’s experience with homelessness should not define their future in life. Through our safe homes, life skills, and workforce development programs, Sasha Bruce Youthwork is helping over 6,000 youth and young families untap their full potential and thrive every year.

Our Adopt a Home for the Holidays Campaign brings together community members who share in our commitment to helping youth thrive. By sponsoring the holiday wish list and providing household essentials, community members help create a safe home for youth experiencing homelessness while providing Sasha Bruce with the resources to support youth long-term.

Responding to the Pandemic

How do you stay home when home is a tent?

The pandemic has been difficult for all of us, but especially for youth experiencing homelessness. As the possibility of a second wave becomes more likely during a period when we already see an increase in need, we are taking action!

We have set an ambitious goal of raising $375,000 for our Rapid Response Fund by January 31, 2020. The funds will help ensure we have the resources to meet the evolving needs of the nearly 6,000 homeless youth we see during the winter months.

Here’s how you can help:

Need Help?

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness, we are here to help. Here are some resources available to any youth under 25:

  • Barracks Row Drop-In Center: This stress-free zone is available for anyone in need of a safe space to rest, warm meal, showers, and laundry services. You can also get help finding a safe place to stay.
