Sheltering our Youth, One Brick at a Time
Ricochet's mission is to create housing resources for young people between the ages of 18 and 35 who are experiencing residential instability in the West Island.
The existing resources on WI do not meet the needs of young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
An emergency shelter does not exist on the WI forcing AJOI’s outreach workers to shuttle WI youth to resources located downtown or Vaudreuil.
The lack of services in the WI contributes directly to the marginalization of these young people, uprooting them from their community and breaking the sense of security they have developed on the WI.
