TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE CHANGE

Young people in our community are experiencing homelessness, family breakdown and disadvantage. 

We need to come together to create sustainable change that not only addresses systemic disadvantage, but shows our young people that we care. We stand with them. We have their back. 

The Friends of NESAY program provides the opportunity for your business to show its support.

Is your business ready to take the pledge? 

"We will raise awareness of homelessness and advocate for all young people in our community."

Being a Friend of NESAY means that your business has signed the pledge of commitment. You also agree to have a “No Swag Jar” at your business to help raise funds for prevention of youth homelessness.
