5 Days is a national campaign run by the Canadian Association of Business Students that strives to raise awareness and donations for members of society that are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
All is done with the goal of sensitizing and educating the public on one of the major problems in this country. Donations raised are given to local shelters and programs to support their services within the community.
The Dalhousie Commerce Society will be partnering with Phoenix Youth Programs in Halifax for the eight-year in a row!
Help us reach our goal of $15,000!
At Phoenix, we believe that people matter. All people. We all have the right to respect, dignity, support, and the opportunity to thrive.
Since 1987, Phoenix has been dedicated to supporting youth and contributing to a vibrant community. Phoenix’s ten locations in Halifax, NS provide a continuum of care for youth ages 11-24 and their families. We offer important services and programs including shelter, food, housing support, health care, parenting support, recreation, education and employment services, and clinical therapy.
Our team of caring professionals recognize that each person who comes to us has individual needs as well as strengths. People are the leaders in their own lives; Phoenix is a leader in supporting them.
