We provide safe and supportive programs and services for children, youth, families and adults to overcome barriers, experience new opportunities, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.
From early years learning through play, to assisting young people and adults find meaningful employment, our services are as varied as the people we serve.
Our programs encourage families to grow strong together, provide babies and toddlers with a wonderful start to life, help children and youth develop into the best they can be, and offer parents and caregivers a place to share, confide and support one another.

"What has being a member of the club been to me? Hmmm. Well, basically being at the club helped me as a teenager to shape myself into who I am today. The staff and volunteers helped me build relationships with adults in my life, instead of doing the usual rebellious thing. The club was a safe place to come and hang out at, with plenty of activities to keep me busy. The staff were always welcoming and encouraging me to make myself better/more. As part of the yout council I had a chance to show some initiative and cooperation with other youth to raise money and hold events at the club, giving me a sense of helping and building a relationship with my community. I always joke that if I hadn't found the club I'd be in jail or lying face-down in a ditch somewhere, but that's only 25% true. Even so, without the club I wouldn't be where I am today so basically it helped me a lot as a youth..." ~ Billy, Staff - (Past Participant)
