We empower individuals to Learn a better living and Live a better life. Once learners begin a journey with us, there is no barrier they can't overcome and no limit to how high they can rise.
Every single kid counts.
We work for positive change in the community by improving the lives of vulnerable children and youth through services that recognize and respond to their emerging needs because we believe that every single kid counts.
We offer training and support to build the capacity of youth and young adults, between the ages of 18 and 30, by supporting their leadership roles in building strong, resilient communities.
We provide a safe and caring place for people whose lives are affected by alcohol or drug dependencies. Men and women access support through our programs in shelter, detox, outreach and housing more than 6,000 times each year. We seek to provide hope, service and well-being.
