How Your Money Helps
Forest YMCA provides support and accommodation to young homeless people between the ages of 16 and 30. We give our residents a safe place to live and access to a range of services designed to help them achieve their full potential.
"As well a place to live, Forest YMCA gave me the opportunity to gain work experience. Thanks to them, I am now a qualified gym instructor and am hoping to enrol on a university course." Mohammed, Forest YMCA Resident
