2SLGBTQIA+ Housing Support Program

2SLGBTQIA+ people in Canada are twice as likely to be unhoused or face housing insecurity than non-2SLGBTQIA+ Canadians (Stats Can 2022). YWCA Halifax and Youth Project are bringing our organizations together to offer housing support services to help queer and trans people find safe, affordable, and affirming homes in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

All aspects of the program are voluntary free, and you don’t have to be “out” to access support.

  • Between 16 to 30 years old
