Kwayatsut youth housing program is a partnership between Pacific Community Resources Society and Vancouver Native Housing that provides housing to 30 youth in a supported environment. Kwayatsut (K-why-ah-sote) is from the Coast Salish language and holds the meaning of seeking one’s power or spirit quest. The building was named by Chief Ian Campbell from the Squamish Nation.

Program Features

Kwayatsut youth housing is a two-year supported-housing program. Program participants will receive the support of a Broadway Youth Resource Centre (BYRC) housing worker to help them meet their housing, personal, and life-skills goals, and they will be assisted in transitioning to their next phase of housing when their time in the program ends.
