The cause

Last year

208

young people accessed transitional housing, employment guidance, and mentorship through Covenant House programs funded by ShareLife donors.

Over

600

boys aged 7-12 attended Camp Ozanam last year; many would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience a summer camp.

As many as

7,000

youth are homeless across Canada on any given night. 80% cite family conflict, abuse or trauma as reasons they lack housing.


How your donation makes a difference:

“We are grateful to Catholic Charities and ShareLife for their continued support of our transitional housing, Youth In Transition and mentorship programs.”
