About Sanctuary Youth Centre

Ride or walk with us on September 23!


Sanctuary Youth Centre creates a safe and supportive environment for Victoria-based street entrenched and at-risk youth ages 14-22. Here they can access basic resources, such as showers, laundry, and hot meals, and find and build community connections. The centre opens 5 days a week and has received over 40,000 visits since the doors opened in 2004.


Funds raised will be directed to Sanctuary’s drop-in and mental health programs, with an emphasis on wellness and healthy living.


Your help means teenagers find hope at a critical stage in their young lives; it means positive choices, pathways to detox, healthy relationships, stronger communities and safer streets.
