Seeing Double on Youth Homelessness
This week we are joined by guests Dr. Naomi Thulien and Mardi Daley.
Naomi is a nurse practitioner and researcher working to eliminate the cycle of youth homelessness. In
2021, Naomi and her husband opened the Breakwater Foundation, a non-profit organization providing
education, rent subsidies and healthcare to young women experiencing homelessness.
Mardi is a Toronto-based advisor, facilitator, and certified Peer Specialist supporting youth experiencing
homelessness and mental health issues. Working through lived experiences, Mardi takes a community-
based approach to support by-youth-for-youth resources, training, inclusion and engagement.
Join Michael, Naomi and Mardi this week to discuss their presentation at CAEH’s National Conference on
Ending Homelessness and the Transitioning out of Youth Homelessness clinical trial.
