"'Welcome .. Home', the National Youth Project (NYP) for 2018-2020 focused on homelessness and affordable housing, is moving ahead with a new website and multiple new resources available online. The NYP traditionally kicks off at the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY) gathering, and 'Welcome .. Home' officially launched at last year's  CLAY event in Thunder Bay [Ontario]. With the release of a revamped CLAY website at claygatherings.ca, new and existing resources to encourage education on homelessness can now be found there. While the resources are primarily targeted at church youth leaders, Sheilagh McGlynn, national youth animator for the Anglican Church of Canada, suggests that many other people could benefit" (p. 1). "In the diocese of Algoma, Anglicans took inspiration from the NYP for their diocesan youth synod at Camp Manitou from June 30-July 3. The youth synod was built around the theme 'Jesus in the Streets' and focused on the question of homelessness, particularly as it affects young people and youth with mental health issues. 'We chose to do this and a lot of other efforts either with youth or even congregations in general in response to 'Welcome .. Home', Jay Koyle, diocesan congregational development officer, says" (p. 10). "Angie Hocking, director of outreach at the Church of the Redeemer in Toronto -- where she oversees a drop-in program providing meals and services to homeless individuals and others -- led five workshops on homelessness at the [Algoma] youth synod. The workshops drew inspiration from and were similar to the NYP but were ultimately Hocking's own creations. For example, one workshop 'Inspiring Action
looked at how churches are acting as ministries of justice within their communities" (p. 10).
