Why Chilli in the Wack is Sleeping Outside
We are sleeping outside to help fight and prevent youth homelessness. In March 2020, the homeless count found that there were over 850 youth (age 13-24) homeless in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, 52 of those in Chilliwack. 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 people found themselves homeless. By making a donation to our team, you are continuing Youth Unlimited’s active and prevention work with homeless and vulnerable youth, providing tangible help, caring support, and a way out.
We are giving up one night so these youth can have a lifetime.
Please support us by donating generously!
