Access Youth Outreach Services:  SUCCESS STORY FROM THE STREET: Our Outreach Team.
Saturday night was productive. We met a few more youth and introduced the program to a few new faces. We met up with a youth who used to be a regular from the Hyde Creek/Minnekhada area but hadn’t been by bus staff for just over a year. She knew our staff Tracey and shared with the rest of us that when she was younger she was ‘quite the party girl and liked her drinks’ but told us that due to the support and encouragement from the team she quit drinking and doesn’t party now and has been sober for over a year now and is concentrating on school and her new job at Panago Pizza!! – Outreach Team.
