Our programs and services provide youth opportunities for growth, empowerment, creating healthy relationships and connection to community.

Our Youth Department provides no-cost onsite and outreach programs and services to youth 10 to 24 years of age, living in conditions of risk or vulnerability. We offer support services and provide opportunities for social activities that promote and foster improved mental and physical health, and enhanced wellbeing. Our Youth Outreach Workers also offer one-to-one support to assist youth with varying issues such as anxiety, self-esteem, problems at school, job search, and family and/or peer relationship difficulties.
