Youville Centre is very grateful for the generosity of our Sponsors and Supporters

Here at the Youville Centre we have two Interrelated Missions of Equal and Linked Priority.

To provide an environment for high-risk teen mothers - one in which staff and peers serve as a support system and as role models to facilitate the growth of young parents and their children in self-worth, self-confidence, and in the skills required to become productive members of society. Youville Centre's holistic, integrated program believes in recognizing the individual needs of clients, and in supporting their commitments to finishing their education and to living independently.

To assist high-risk teen mothers to provide a life circumstance for their children, which builds in strong protective factors and influences so that their children will not develop mental health, behavioural and social problems in the future.

Achieving these goals is not easy but with the help of our wonderful community partners, our task is made much easier. For all your help, we give you our sincere thanks.
