Aperçu

I know you will agree with me that everyone needs a place to call home. A home is a place that lightens our hearts and gives us comfort to resort to at the end of a challenging day, however this is not the reality of the estimated 2000 young people homeless on the streets of the GTA nightly. As it currently stands in the city of Brampton there are no long term supports or transitional housing for youth faced with homelessness. According to research conducted by organizations such as United Way Peel in 2016, the rates of youth homelessness in these cities are at crisis levels (source:https://www.mississauga.com/opinion-story/6560673-stunning-statistics-drive-need-to-help-peel-s-homeless-youth/).

The vision of R.E.S.T. is to reduce the rate of homelessness among youth leaving foster care.Our mission is the establishment of a system that permanently helps youth get off the streets, from intake, mentoring and training, to reintegration  and transition to independent living.

Our Bridge of Hope program is a crucial step in this mission. It is a home-host program based on a partnership between REST Centres and community members, which aids in the provision of housing solutions for youth who would like to live independently in the community but still need mentorship and training to do so.

On September 22, 2018 we are hosting our inaugural Walk a thon called Walk in My Shoes. We will be walking to raise awareness on youth homelessness and funding to support our bridge of hope program. T
