Meet Yuri

Yuri is Haven member and an amazing chess player!

 

Originally from Ukraine, Yuri has lived in Toronto for the past 6 years and has been a member of Haven Toronto ever since. He has been a talented chess player going back to the time he participated in many tournaments throughout Ukraine as a youth. 

Today, he continues to find opportunities to teach young people and adults and enjoys organizing monthly chess tournaments for fellow members at Haven.

Yuri currently has stable housing at Good Sheppard- a shelter in Downtown Toronto but he relies on Haven’s Healthy Meals Program to help him stretch his budget.  

Chess is just one of the social and recreational activities members can access at Haven - an essential part of daily life allowing them to develop new skills and commune with new and old friends.
