Why Work At Avenues

Avenues partners with youth experiencing homelessness to achieve their dreams. We strive to do that in a safe and nurturing environment through a social justice lens. Through such service, Avenues seeks to support youth and young families while they define their experiences, life dreams and futures. Our work takes into account historical trauma, systems of oppression and intersectionality while being grounded in the power of resiliency, healing and community.

Our work is grounded by the 9 Evidence-based Principles to Help Youth Overcome Homelessness.

Our Values

Equity
Community
Respect + Dignity
Trust
Liberation
  Anti-Oppression
