Annual Algonquian Canoe Trip
Cash House’s contributions have allowed for more youth to attend the trip and truly benefit from the beauty of nature. Not only have helped to send more youth to Algonquian, but also able to support additional staff to attend. This trip is truly a life changer and we are so thrilled to be able to allow the opportunity to be open to more youth.
General Education Diploma Program
Horizons for Youth is now able to offer their clients the GED program. In Ontario obtaining a GED is the closest thing to having a High School Diploma.

Horizons has recently had their first graduate from the GED program!
Home Runs for Horizons
Every year Horizons for Youth puts together a baseball tournament to help raise funds and awareness for the shelter. This year Cash House entered the tournament and a team of Cash House employees participated. Cash House employees worked alongside Horizons for Youth staff to sell and distribute hamburgers and hot dogs in an effort to increase awareness about the shelter.
Currently Cash House and Horizons for Youth are working in tandem to create a new series of workshops and programs geared towards preparing youth for the working world and day to day life. Some of the topics that would be covered include housing skills and knowledge, community outreach, employment readiness and much much more!
