Saint John Youth Shelter One Step Closer To Reality

Right now there could be hundreds of homeless youth in Saint John--although the exact number is difficult to determine--and no shelter exists that is tailored specifically to their needs. 

Colin MacDonald of the Safe Harbour Youth House tells CHSJ News it's an unacceptable situation; however, a $37, 500 grant from the New Brunswick Children's Association is bringing organizers one step closer to opening a youth shelter.

MacDonald says the exact timeline isn't clear yet but they are expecting to see a shelter built within the next year.
