Welcoming the Fraser Valley’s newest mobile youth hangout:
At Youth Unlimited, we are all about meeting youth wherever they may be, bringing hope in places that are hard to reach. It’s important to us to find new ways to connect with youth, and ultimately aid in the transformation of their lives. A retro-fitted firetruck is the way to do it.
Chris Hyslop — a YU outreach worker in Abbotsford — says,
“An inherent difficulty in working with young people involves finding ways to help them to access the resources we can make available to them. Whether it is getting to those resources, or guardian concerns about who is giving those out, a gap can exist between the resources and youth accessibility.”
Youth Unlimited drop-ins have real stories of real change. Stories like Mickaella’s, a young mom who found hope and support at Abbotsford’s last drop-in centre, C-21.
