Why Kayla Brix is Sleeping Outside
I’m sleeping outside to help fight and prevent youth homelessness.
In April, the homeless count found that there were nearly 700 youth (age 13-24) homeless in Metro Vancouver. Thousands more experience episodic homelessness and are considered precariously or inappropriately housed. According to Raise the Roof, over 35,000 youth experience homelessness throughout the year in Canada. Family conflict, addiction and mental health issues were cited as the biggest reasons individuals found themselves homeless.
By making a donation to me, you are continuing Youth Unlimited’s active and prevention work with homeless and vulnerable youth, providing tangible help, caring support and a way out.
I’m giving up one night, so these youth can have a lifetime. Please support me by donating generously!
