Welcome to the website for Argus Residence for Young People, a charitable organization in Cambridge, Ontario. Argus is vibrantly committed to a vision of fostering personal growth and awareness among youth experiencing homelessness.
Since 1985, Argus has provided emergency shelter to youth between the ages of 16-24 who are experiencing homelessness in our community. The agency operates two 24 hour shelter locations; a 10-bed shelter for young women and a 15-bed shelter for young men. Argus is unique in the Waterloo Region due to our ability to amalgamate the essential services of food, shelter and 24-hour staff support with a comprehensive life-skills acquisition program which works to mobilize our youth toward healthy and viable community integration. Our goal is to equip young people with the tools they need in order to thrive.
Argus Residence for Young People is a proud partner agency of the United Way of Cambridge and North Dumfries and maintains a purchase of service with the Regional Municipality of Waterloo. Argus works closely with many community partners, including but not limited to Family and Children Services of the Waterloo Region, local schools and the wider social service community.
