The RAFT – operated by the Niagara Resource Service for Youth contributes to the welfare of our community by helping at-risk youth, families and neighbourhoods become independent and self-sufficient.
Services strengthen the emotional and social well being of clients while acting as a portal to community resources. We believe that working together, one step at a time, we can make a difference.
The RAFT helps kids living on the street and those at risk of being on the street. For homeless and at risk street youth, the RAFT provides a Resource Drop In Centre, Hostel and Steps to Independent Living Program.
Through its Neighbourhood Awakening Initiatives, and After School Programs, the RAFT helps young people and local groups make positive changes in their neighbourhoods.
The Youth Reconnect Program supports at risk youth in their home communities and prevents them from having to leave the Region to obtain services.
