YMCA of Greater Toronto's Sprott House

On January 14, 2016, Toronto Mayor John Tory was on hand for the official opening of the program at YMCA Sprott House.

“The City and the YMCA of Greater Toronto are responding to the unacceptable reality that 1 in 5 homeless youth identify as LGBTQ2SA,” wrote John Tory in a Facebook post.

LGBTQ2SA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, 2-spirited and ally )homeless youth aged 16 to 24 can move into the 25-bed transitional housing facility starting February 1 and can stay up to one year, less a day. Read one youth’s story of his experience at Sprott House.
