Join us for an exclusive access, donor only webinar to hear how we will build and equip a newly expanded purpose-built health centre at our Evergreen Centre for Street-Involved Youth, to improve our health care capacity to more than 4x its current size!
This $3.1M priority project will increase our range of services for youth, provide greater access to vital mental health services, reduce treatment wait times, extend our hours of operation and ensure current, up to date medical equipment needed to provide comprehensive care to vulnerable youth.
