Each night of the year, on average, the Youth Emergency Shelter (Y.E.S) of Peterborough provides emergency housing to fifteen individuals - a total of approximately 5500 bed-nights annually. Those individuals may be youth - men or women as young as 16, on their own - or they may be a family, parents and children living together in just about every possible configuration.
For any variety of reasons, they need a safe, warm place to stay - sometimes for a few days, sometimes for several weeks.
Y.E.S. has been providing that safe haven since 2002.
