Youth Link

The Mission of this group is to maintain a strong Scarborough where all youth and families thrive. Youth Link is a CRA charity and over the past several years, this agency has received financial aid from several 7070 Clubs and are now seeking to expand their brand across all 7070 Clubs.

Youth Link has a physical site on Danforth Road in Scarborough which will be converted into a multi- purpose facility for homeless youth and other young people who have been impacted with marginalized mental health. In 1964, Youth Link opened its first group home for young women and in 1974, it added young men and boys to the service.

Today, Youth Link offers residential treatment homes, maintains 4 co-op houses, a mental health walk -in clinic, counselling programs, programs for LGBTQ clients, those who are developmentally delayed or in the care of Children’s Aid as well as parents of youth.

The Pathways to Education which serves over several hundreds of marginalized young people have strengthened many of their lives.
