Portal Youth Outreach Assocation


Welcome to our SoKind registry!

The Portal Youth Outreach Association has purchased three homes for youth who are either experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. We desire to offer safe supportive housing for youth 16-24 in Kentville, Windsor, and Middleton. This is not a shelter model but a home for healing, restoring, support services and assistance to independent living. We need your help to make this happen!

This website compiles our list of our Furniture Drive, but does not sell the gifts. We are looking for new or gently used items in excellent condition. If you would like to give a monetary donation to put toward items not collected in the furniture drive there is a spot for that.

If you would like to 'claim' a gift, be sure to click on the 'Give this gift' button so the gift will be claimed in your name, and so that we won't receive any duplicates. We thank you for your patience when giving several times, as each will require a new "claim".

Drop off from July 20- Aug 20. We will contact you with drop off information with-in two business days of receiving the notification of your gracious "gift".

Thank you!

Donation of money

You can email to donation@portalyouth.ca, or drop by our offices with a cheque payable to Portal Youth Outreach Association.
