Directions Youth Haven
Are you in need of a safe place to stay? Are you under 20 years old?
Directions Youth Haven offers low barrier emergency housing to youth aged 16-19* who need a safe space to stay. Our program is a confidential, home environment welcome to all genders. You will have a comfortable place to rest and receive non-judgmental support from our caring staff, as well as access to onsite medical care and counselling. The length of stay can range from a few days to a month depending on your needs. Our staff will meet you where you are at with your goals and connect you with longer term supports as needed.

How You Can Support Youth
Day in, day out, Directions Youth Services staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help Vancouver’s homeless or street-entrenched youth get back on their feet. Through professional supports including mental health, addictions and trauma counselling, we give youth the tools needed to make healthier, safer choices. Thanks to the generous gifts from donors, we are able to reach more young people and offer them an even greater level of care.
