Our Mission

To reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness in the Annapolis Valley and prevent further youth from becoming homeless. We want all youth in the Annapolis Valley to have a safe, supportive and nurturing home. 

About Portal Youth Outreach Association 

The Portal Youth Outreach Association (formerly The Valley Refuge Association) oversees the Portal Youth Centre. The people at The Portal Youth Centre act as a safe place for youth. Each young person can come as they are. Youth can access services and supports by coming to The Portal or contacting us.  The Portal is like a resource centre that weaves actions of prevention, outreach, and partnership. Adults and youth, together, provide a compassionate response to the pain and challenges that youth in our communities face.  Our priority is young people 16– 21 years of age from all walks of life. in 2018, we began to rally the community around a 10 year plan to end youth homelessness.

 Thank you for your generous contribution, we appreciate your investment into the lives of youth in our community.
