Streetohome provided funding for The Kettle building on Burrard, which provides 30 units of housing for youth. Services for youth are provided by Directions, an agency of Family Services of Greater Vancouver.

Directions Youth Services works with homeless and at-risk youth between 13 to 24 years old. It provides low-barrier  services, meaning they serve Vancouver’s most vulnerable — and challenging — homeless youth.
