Why Tombert Chen 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. Hundreds to 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!
