What moves you? The Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly fundraising bike or walk in support of the Portal Youth Outreach Association. We are coming together to show our support for serving people seeking hope, safety, and freedom. Join us Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023!
The Portal Youth Outreach Association provides access to a brighter future for youth in the Annapolis Valley. The Portal acts as a resource centre to youth and works to prevent and respond to youth who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. These youth, who are sometimes forgotten, are facing challenges such as relational breakdown, substance abuse & addictions, isolation, poverty, homelessness, literacy challenges, crime and street level risks, and work/education shortcomings. The Portal provides a safe place physically and emotionally for young people to secure basic needs of food, shelter, relationships and experience a sense of belonging so that they can take work through their trauma/ emotional needs and become independent. Each individual is accepted, regardless of their lifestyle, beliefs, age, race, gender, or social-economic status. The Portal's vision is that all youth in the Annapolis Valley have a safe, supportive and loving home.
