Benefit helps at-risk youth

The Word on the Street brings together music, history, personal stories and prayer.

The Word on the Street, a benefit for Victoria’s Sanctuary Youth Centre, will bring together music, history, personal stories and prayer.

First opened in 2004 by Cornerstone Youth Society in partnership with a group of Greater Victoria churches, Sanctuary Youth Centre has served as a downtown haven for youth-at-risk.

Sanctuary staff and volunteers offer a community of acceptance and encouragement along with access to programs and resources.

As it nears the end of its first decade, the centre has undertaken a period of re-evaluating and re-visioning around its two ministries of drop-in and street outreach.

The main focus of the Word on the Street evening will be to paint a picture of the last nine years and inspire anticipation for what lies ahead.  There will be a freewill offering.

The Word on the Street takes place on Saturday (Nov. 16) at Alix Gooden Hall,.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. start.

For more information on the event visit sanctuaryyouth.org or call 250 385-6255.
