Some people think that we’re in the business of giving youth a safe place for a second chance at life.
Others think that we provide youth the tools they need to make the right choices in life. Neither is wrong because it is both of those things and so much more.
We save young lives. We give hope to families.
We help youth define and discover a new future for themselves – one that is filled with hopes and dreams for the future. One that is paved with goals to reach for and to stay connected to. We help youth who come to us to heal from past trauma. We help youth manage the mental health issues they may often face and we help them overcome their substance abuse issues.
We help rebuild families who have reached or passed the breaking point. We counsel family members on what substance dependency is and how to communicate in healthy ways to rebuild what has been shattered. We see parents who have lost hope for their child and for what they envisioned a family could be. We help parents rebuild what they think they have lost and help them come to a place where a new beginning, a brighter future is possible.
We help youth walk a path to wellness. We help bring families back together.
We’ve been doing this for over 20 years, helping thousands of youth and their families in Ottawa and across Ontario. With your support we will do this for many more years and continue to make a life-changing difference for young people, their families and our communities.
