Five/Fourteen is Canada’s only social enterprise dedicated solely to providing services and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, two-spirited, and otherwise gender-independent youth in foster care.
 

There are thousands of LGBTQ youth in care in Ontario. Yet, in 2016, there still isn’t a single designated safe placement for youth on the rainbow spectrum, and without Five/Fourteen, no agency is dedicated entirely to their care.

An independent agency with established relationships and partnerships with existing social service agencies, the Government of Ontario, and university research centres,

Five/Fourteen will provide foster placement services and community integration support for youth in foster care who identify as LGBTQ or otherwise gender non-conforming. Five/Fourteen aims to create a path for our clients to move seamlessly from foster care to full independence with solid life skills and a supportive community
