If only you could see the impact that your decision will have on a young person’s life forever
What is a Roughing It Partnership?
Helping NYSA tackle youth homelessness provides:
In simple terms, a Roughing It partnership is the arrangement between your organization and NYSA whereby you help raise money to provide more housing opportunities for homeless youth. This is much more than a financial transaction — you are making a difference that a young person will remember for the rest of their lives.
In addition to providing housing for youth in the region, NYSA provides other supports like connections to landlords, RentSmart education for new renters and outreach assistance.
Life skills and personal development opportunities help young people to dream big dreams and take hold of a future free from poverty and bad choices.
Your support as a partner is a relational investment into a youth’s confidence, aspirations and self-esteem.
In addition to housing, many youth are malnourished due to lack of knowledge and money. Supplementary food and nutrition information is provided by NYSA to help ensure healthy growth and development.
Compassionate skill building equips young people with the life skills needed to become fulfilled adults who have the potential to be leaders in their communities.
Every youth should have the opportunity to discover how exciting it is to have a healthy, fulfilling life with goals, aspirations and security.
This issue of homelessness is enormous and we know that. Even in Nanaimo, the numbers are shocking. You may be asking, “Can supporting this cause really make a difference?” We say, “Yes!” and believe you should too.
Our supporters consistently share that simply knowing there was someone who cared for them gave them hope.
They tell us how the persistent encouragement of NYSA staff telling them to never give up and the commitment to advocating for their interests absolutely transformed their lives.
We believe that is a mission and goal that you would like to support as well.
