The YouthLink Youth Transition Home and Emergency Shelter, housed in a single storey building under renovation at 747 Warden Ave., north of St. Clair Avenue East, is slated to open on March 15 for people aged 16 to 24.
It will have 10 emergency shelter beds and 41 transition long-term beds. It will be a co-ed facility with rooms for couples. YouthLink, a registered charity, is a youth mental health agency in Toronto.
When it opens, the facility will contain Scarborough’s only youth homeless emergency shelter. It will be the only Toronto youth shelter with a dog kennel, so those living on the street with their dogs use the facility. -CINEWS
