Youth Emergency Shelter

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.

Open 24 hrs a day
