Written by 

People showed their support for an emergency youth shelter in southwest Saskatchewan during a rally in front of Dorie's House in Swift Current, March 28. The rally was a response to a letter from the Ministry of Social Services to the non-profit organization Southwest Youth Emergency Shelter (YES), which indicated there will not be any funding allocation for Dorie's House in the 2018-19 provincial budget. Speakers during the rally included two local youth, who talked about their personal experiences with homelessness in Swift Current. There were also musical performances by students from Maverick School.
