The Windsor Residence for Young Men (1505 Langlois Ave, Windsor ON, N8X 4M3)

The Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM) supports youth ages 16-24 as they leave homelessness behind to build new lives. WRYM provides a wide range of services to support youth who identify as male on their journey from “street to home”.

Our mission is to help young men experiencing homelessness find the pride in themselves and the confidence in their future necessary to seize the rewards of a productive life which contributes to our community.

In 2023, WRYM provided support to over 100 former and current residents and was able to achieve an 87% success rate in transitioning youth from homelessness to build new lives.

The Windsor Residence for Young Men’s four programs:

  1. Transitional Housing Program: offers emotional support, life-skill teaching, case management, and housing acquisition. This program includes 24/7/365 staffing and support to help address a youth’s needs relating to their experience of homelessness.
  2. Semi-Independent Living Program: for residents who have graduated from the transitional housing program. These individuals will still receive staff support and assistance where required, but they can gain experience coping with some of the challenges that will occur when living independently.
  3. Youth Independent Program (YIP): a 3-month classroom-based life skill curriculum, that runs Monday to Friday from 1:00PM to 3:00PM. Life-skills discussed in YIP ensure resiliency and enhance a resident’s self-reliance. Youth who complete this program are eligible for a high school credit through the Public Alternative Secondary School (PASS).
  4. Aftercare / Outreach Program: provides support to any of our former residents who require assistance after leaving our home, as well as others who decide not to enter our program. These services offered are geared towards housing retention, short-term crisis responsory, referral assistance, and/or emotional support.

This is the second year WRYM has held a 50/50 Raffle, and it has already become an integral part of our fundraising efforts. When the draw is made, WRYM will contact the winner directly so they can claim their prize.

We would like to thank all of you in advance for supporting our fundraiser! Your kind generosity is greatly appreciated!
