The YWCA St. Thomas Elgin is pleased to announce that they have kicked off their fourth annual Keep A Roof Campaign. This fundraising campaign is in support of the supportive housing programs that offer safe, affordable housing to youth, women & men in St. Thomas & Elgin County.

"We might not always see it but homelessness does exist in St. Thomas & Elgin County," says Marla Champion, YWCA Executive Director. "By providing supportive and affordable housing in our community we are often preventing a cycle of poverty that can last a lifetime. We're able to offer these important programs through the incredible support of our community. The Keep A Roof Campaign is a great way to give back and make a real difference in the lives of those at-risk of homelessness in St. Thomas & Elgin County!"

The Keep A Roof Campaign kicked off at St. Thomas Home and Garden show and will continue throughout the month of April. Proceeds will support YWCA housing programs that offer supportive, affordable housing to youth, women & men who are at-risk of homelessness. Those interested can donate or purchase a shingle on the YWCA's Model of Hope home. For more information or to donate, individuals or businesses can visit www.ywcastthomaselgin.org or by calling 519-631-9800.

About YWCA St. Thomas Elgin's Housing Program:

YWCA Harmony House & Fair Winds for Youth: These homes are for youth between the ages of 16-24 who find themselves without the supports necessary to make a healthy transition from youth to adulthood. While at the home they are required to be in school or working and must work towards personal goals.

YWCA Women's Residence: Established in 1928, our Women's Residence on Mary Street is a warm and inviting 21 bed facility that provides emergency, transitional and long-term housing. Residents requiring emergency support are provided with housing, food and toiletries and have access to our in-house programs including tutoring, literacy and computer training

YWCA Men's Residence: For many years, St. Thomas has had very little options for men who found themselves without stable, affordable housing. In 2013, the YWCA along with community partners opened "Second Story" a new Men's Residence that offer men stable and supportive housing, similar to the services offered at our Women's Residence.
