Pictou County Roots for Youth is a not-for-profit organization that helps youth aged 16-24 to end their homelessness. We have a 4-bed youth homeless shelter located at 603 East River Rd. in New Glasgow.
The average young person stays with us between 2-3 months and receives connection to 9 services in our community that can help them get their lives back on track.
We also operate daily Drop In sessions from 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm open to ALL YOUTH of our community where youth can get a hot meal, go online, do laundry for free, and find a supportive adult to talk to.
If you're between the ages of 16-24, please come and visit us!
