ForRay Shoppe

Resource Assistance for Youth, Inc.

Furnishing a second chance

forRaY is RaY’s latest youth employment training program and new social enterprise initiative. An abundance of distinctive secondhand furniture and household items are being made available to the community. Located at 195 Young St. in West Broadway, forRaY provides a supportive environment for youth to enhance their employability through the development of retail and customer service skills in a supportive environment.

This neighbourhood renewal initiative is supported by Neighbourhoods Alive and Manitoba Housing.


Due to unforeseen circumstances, the ForRaY Second Chance Shoppe is closed until further notice. We expect to be back up and running shortly.

Why shop at forRaY?

forRay Shop

When you shop at forRaY, you’re providing the opportunity for marginalized youth to develop their own tools to succeed and escape poverty through real-world employment experience. Behind every purchase is a person and a story. Your participation in this program is actually impacting lives.

Not only will your purchase impact young lives for the better, but every dollar spent is reinvested back into RaY’s programs and services to ensure we can continue to provide resources for the growing number of youth who require assistance on their journey to independence.
