What is Light The Way Home?
This night walk is a community event to raise funds for Pathways for Children, Youth and Families of York Region, and awareness of youth homelessness in the region. On Friday April 12th, 2013 at 7 pm, members of the Richmond Hill community will come together at the Pathways' Home Base Youth Drop-In Centre, located at 10944 Yonge Street, and walk through the neighbourhood, lifting their lanterns and raising funds for this important issue.
We will follow a route south to the lighting ceremony at the site where our proposed new centre will one day stand, thanks to all the efforts of our community.
The evening will include hot and cold refreshments, food, an award ceremony for the Top Fundraisers and a performance from youth involved in programs at Pathways!
Why are we Fundraising?
Currently, Pathways Home Base Youth Drop-In Centre is run out of a two storey house, and as we expand the number of youth we serve, we want to be able to expand the services we provide. Our vision is the Richmond Hill Housing Hub, a one-stop complex where young people at-risk can access safe, supportive housing day-and-night, and Pathways’ full range of programs designed to transition them from crisis to self-sufficiency.
