Dorie’s House is an emergency youth shelter that was built by the community of Swift Current. Dorie’s house provided a safe and supported living environment for youth boasting 8 beds and two youth workers around the clock to provide support to our homeless or at risk of being homeless youth. The Saskatchewan Government states there is no money for funding for this important service, so Dorie’s House was built by volunteers and has relied strictly on donations. It is a non-profit, charitable organization that has recently been shut down due to a lack of funding. SEIU-West Young Workers believe that this service is vital for our youth. How can our at-risk teenagers get a good education and succeed without housing and support systems to help them? Help us support this important shelter by attending this concert.
Deadline to enter: November 8, 2017.
