At Shaw House we believe that all young people should have a roof over their heads and a safe place to call home.

Today there are far too many young people who, through no fault of their own, are without safe home and caring family to help them achieve successful, healthy, happy young adulthood.

Shaw House serves over 300 of these homeless, at-risk youth every year, providing them with a 'safe haven' and connection to caring adults to help them move beyond the streets and towards a positive future.
