Established in 2012, the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre Foundation works collaboratively with the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre to support the fundraising needs of the organization. Our efforts allow the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre to provide expanded and comprehensive services to a larger number of youth and families in need in Ottawa and across Ontario.
The Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre Foundation has recently launched the Dave’s Dream campaign. Dave’s Dream is a $5 million fundraising campaign to support the construction of a new 30-bed youth residential treatment facility in West Ottawa. The new Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre will merge 3 temporary and aging campuses into a centralized location, resulting in substantial operational savings while simultaneously permitting the expansion of much-needed addiction treatment supports and services.
