As of March 1, 2022, the Kingston Youth Shelter has returned to our original location at 234 Brock Street.

To get in touch with us, call 613-549-4236, send a message to, or stop by 234 Brock Street.

In order to comply with COVID restrictions as per the direction of KFL&A Public Health, we will only be able to accommodate six individuals. We are hoping this is only short term until we can prepare a space that Queen’s University (MacGillivray-Brown Hall) has so graciously provided for us.

The Kingston Youth Shelter continues to operate at 113 Lower Union Street to provide youth the space to physically distance or self-isolate if needed.

If you or someone you know is in need of immediate assistance, please contact the shelter directly at 613-549-4236 or visit 113 Lower Union Street.

We have increased cleaning and sanitizing at our emergency shelter and transition homes. We continue to monitor staff and residents for symptoms and send them to the appropriate locations for testing. Staff are required to screen new residents and any essential visitors for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entry. If a youth is experiencing symptoms, they self-isolate in their private room to reduce contact.
