The Home Depot Canada Foundation is honoured to support Phoenix Youth Programs, an organization that supports at-risk and homeless youth in Halifax and the surrounding region.
With funding from The Home Depot Canada Foundation and the volunteer support of local The Home Depot Canada associate volunteers, Phoenix Youth Programs will make a series of renovations to:
Phoenix House - a 10-bed, long term residence for male and female youthPhoenix Centre for Youth - a street level walk-in center that helps youth in their day-to-day lives andPhoenix Youth Shelter - a self-referral youth emergency shelter that is available to both male and female youth with 20 beds, each in their own rooms.
The Foundation's contribution will also support programs offered by Phoenix that provide youth with the life skills they require to become independent young adults. In addition, it will enable Phoenix Youth Programs to implement the use of the Outcome Star, a tool designed to both measure and support progress for the youth they serve in areas such as self-reliance, life skills development and improved mental health.
