Sutton Youth Shelter

Partnering with youth today to create a healthier tomorrow!

Welcome to Sutton Youth Shelter (SYS) website.

Our intention is for you to be just a click away from the information or services that you need, be it emergency shelter for youth, transitional housing supports, employment and education programs, housing and community supports and volunteer opportunities.

The Salvation Army Sutton Youth Shelter is committed to strengthening youth and their families by partnering with youth today to create a healthier tomorrow, and fostering safe and healthy communities.  Sutton Youth shelter is a shelter and drop-in center for youth experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness in the northern part of York Region.

We encourage, model and teach community in Christ to meet the holistic needs and develop the gifts of youth that we meet through compassion, support and Christian love.  Our aim is to be a welcoming, safe place for all people who enter, towards things such as community, belonging, dignity, respect, recovery, reconciliation, friendship, and God.

The work at Sutton Youth Shelter is accomplished through unconditional acceptance of each person who comes within its influence, combined with a holistic rehabilitation approach and individualized care.  We work diligently to send a strong and clear message to all people who come here including staff, volunteers, funders, or community members, that no one is more or less important than anyone else.  We believe that all people have been created in the image of God. Therefore we believe that every person has gifts to offer the world. It is out of our faith in the Creator God that we believe in “Giving Hope Today”.



Support for this program was made possible through the York Region Community and Health Services Department's Community Development Investment Fund.
