Stories

Firstly I would like to thank the staff for their great job. I met friends that are so helpful and fun here at Horizons. I am provided with a shelter and can wake up in the morning knowing there is breakfast at hand, and a washroom that’s clean. The first time I came here, I had nothing. Donations helped a lot and I was motivated by others. I can now walk upright knowing the sky is the limit. The nice thing about being at Horizons for Youth is that I feel at home. I just got an apartment and thank the staff for their hard work and support.

Horizons has given me a warm and safe place to stay at night, three meals a day and two snacks as well. The staff are really helpful, a listening ear when I have a concern on my mind. If it weren’t for services like Horizons, I would probably be sleeping on the street. I would not have the help and support.

Horizons has provided me with a safe place to rest my head at night when I have had nowhere else to turn. The staff provide life skills to each resident in their own unique ways and . They take the time one on one to see how they can better your situation. Furthermore, there are an advanced number of resources that have helped me to obtain the rest of my high school credits and pursue a job according to my interests. I like the programs at Horizons. The staff cater to each and everyone’s different needs, they listen, reach out, sit down and actually listen to your problems. If it weren’t for Horizons, I think I would be on the streets, in jail or possibly dead. Horizons gives hope and a chance to those who are down on their luck.
