What Our Clients Say
I’m happy with how far I got in just one week.
This place really helped me know I can change. Everyone was super supportive and friendly and made my stay good.
A really good supportive environment with excellent staff who seem to really care.
The staff were open-minded about my gender identity.
I really liked how the staff were supportive and helpful, but also gave me space to do as I felt needed to do.
You give people like me, who never had a chance, a way to start again...
Directions Street Youth Job Action program really made a huge difference in my life. They gave me much more than a daily paycheque. I got more confidence in myself since they trusted me. Having them on my resume is what allowed me to get off welfare.
Street Youth Job Action gave me the confidence to enter the workforce after having lived on and off the streets for years.
10 would recommend, these people do whatever they can to make you feel comfortabl e, safe, secure. make sure you're housed, clothed, fed. as well as educated.
thanks a bunch for being there when i was down on my luck
Street Youth Job Action was the only thing that got me out of bed & doing something on a daily basis. It has gotta be the most beneficial program I’ve ever come across as a street youth.
I spent the day crying alone under the Burrard Bridge. Then I came here and some guys made me laugh and you fed me this beautiful dinner. Thank you for doing that.
Thank you Directions, you saved my life.
