What We Do
Youth QUEST

In 2001, a study was commissioned in Moncton to look at the issues of homelessness.  The results indicated a lack of services for youth in this area so MYR once again broadened its complement of services to meet the needs of this specific population.  The word QUEST was used as an acronym that reflected MYR's service delivery for these programs:  Quality, Understanding, Empowerment, Self-sufficiency, Transition.

Youth ages 16 to 20 who are homeless or potentially homeless access this program to stabilize and change their lives.  Up to 4 males and 4 females have the opportunity to reside in supported environments that offer them a chance to learn skills that will lead to greater self-sufficiency in areas of budgeting, nutrition, social and life skills, self-esteem, anger management, and finding and maintaining employment.  The youth reside with a live-in peer model, are expected to be involved in school, employment or volunteering, and meet with staff on a regular bases.  A four-month after-care program is offered.  For more information or to apply to this program, please click here.

"Before (MYR) not thinking about the future is what kept me going around in circles. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and it feels like I have a future, I now put a greater value on my life".
