Barrie’s Youth Haven Holds a Special Prom Night
Prom night should be a memory that stays with you forever.
Yet for many thousands of youth across Canada, prom never happens.
Whether through a lack of family support, not finishing high school, or not having a home at all, there are many teenagers who simply don’t get the chance to take part in one of the most cherished moments of growing up.
In Barrie, Youth Haven is about to make that memory for many local teens.
On June 6th, the emergency shelter presents A Time To Shine at Ferndale Banquet Hall.
The evening is a Prom for those who didn’t get to attend their own night, with all of the attendant features.
All the youth attending will be outfitted with suits or gowns, and provided makeup and hair styling. Professional pictures will be taken, live music is being provided, as well tons of food and drinks.
A host of community members have stepped up to donate services, volunteer or funds to purchase tickets for youth.
There are still slots to purchase, as well as volunteer opportunities. All money raised over and above the cost of Prom will support YH’s programs in their mission to assist youth experiencing homelessness.
