Lately we have been having a lot of fun preparing for our upcoming Shepherd’s Fashion FUNRaiser event this coming Tuesday, October 20th at Shepherd’s Train Yards at 6:00 pm!

It is going to be a fantastic night of fun and fashion, and we hope to see you there! For a little fashion inspiration, here are some photos from last year’s event:

We also thought we would tell you more about why we are having this event in the first place! We are raising funds so that more of our young moms here at Youville Centre (ages 14 to 21) can access mental health and addiction counselling, and so their children (ages 1 month to 3 years) can access parent-child attachment counselling and continue to benefit from our infant mental health programs.

Your support of Youville Centre by attending our Fashion FUNRaiser can make an immediate difference in the lives of our young mothers and their children.

By supporting Youville, you are supporting young moms like Sarah:

Thank you for watching this wonderful video that we co-produced with our friends at United Way Ottawa. We thought it was important for you to know where your donation will help the most when you are considering coming to our event.

Here is where you can purchase tickets:

We hope to see you there!

A heartfelt thank you to our wonderful sponsors for making this event possible:
