PROGRAM DOWNTOWN HUB
Day Daily
Ages 16-26
Fees N/A

The What:
The Downtown Hub exists to be a consistent resource meeting the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of at-risk youth in London. The Downtown Hub creates safe spaces for at-risk youth to find community (YFC London youth centre, churches, coffee shops).  These safe spaces are staffed by a team of dedicated outreach workers, placement students, and volunteers. Our goal is to provide a safe and consistent place for at-risk youth (16-25 years) to come to receive food, basic needs, support, advocacy, and a sense of community.

NOTE: During the COVID-19 self-isolation, we are distributing meals directly to your home Mondays to Fridays between 4-6pm.  Contact info@yfclondon.com to get on the meal delivery list.

  • Youth deserve a safe space to experience consistent and compassionate relationships.
  • A lack of community and social/emotional support is the largest barrier faced by youth.
  • The Downtown Hub provides a safe and consistent place for at-risk youth (16-25 years) to come to receive food, basic needs, support, and a sense of community.
  • The Downtown Hub supports youth as they engage other community agencies for help with housing stability, mental health and wellness, addictions, legal issues, parenting support, and healthy relationships.
  • The Downtown Hub journeys with youth as they seek to make positive life choices, and supports them as they engage other community organizations.
  • The Downtown Hub intentionally promotes healthy relationships and positive support networks to increase the social and emotional wealth of our youth.
  • We partner with churches, social service agencies, community members, and businesses in order to empower, support, and advocate for youth.
