Open Door Youth Services Centre

The Open Door Youth Services Centre helps people 24 and under to meet their basic needs. The Open Door is fully equipped to support youth in a multitude of ways: we provide a safe space for youth to shower, laundry facilities, a nurse on site with no appointment needed. Prescriptions are available, and we also offer some paediatric care for youth mothers. Youth are invited to engage with caring staff who can connect them with other supports in the community.

The People Concern

We empower people to rebuild their lives. Our goal is to end human suffering - not just manage it. Our highly effective integrated model of care enables 92% of those placed in permanent housing to remain housed indefinitely. We build self-sufficiency, restore dignity and help our vulnerable neighbors become contributing members of the community, enhancing the quality of life for everyone concerned.

Cornerstone Landing

Cornerstone Landing Youth Services has been providing support to young people who have experienced or were at risk of Homelessness in Lanark County since 2011. Finding housing for young people has alwasy been a challenge as subsidized housing wait lists are 3-5 years long, landlords are reluctant to rent to young people and the cost of private market housing is often out of their budget.  Hence, Cornerstone Landing has offered rent subsidies to young people to enable them to afford housing. Many youth share accomodations to make it more affordable.
