Donations to assist youth who are homeless

News > Donations to assist youth who are homeless

The President of the Ross Valley Lions Club, Rowena Wichman and Lion Robert Visini presented our CEO, Wendy Lang a cheque for $3,000 and 20 backpacks full with personal hygiene items.  This donation will go a great way towards purchasing food vouchers and clothing vouchers and supporting the young people that come to QYS for assistance because they have found themselves homeless.

In the financial year 2015 to 2016, QYS assisted 123 youth to find temporary accommodation because they were homeless or at immediate risk of homelessness. This donation will assist those young people who have found themselves in a crisis situation of being without any food or clothing.
