Wish List

Community Corner:

Our Community Corner is where young people can comfortably access items they need without having to ask. Community members bring by hygiene supplies, used clothing, kitchen items, small housewares, non-perishable food items and more. These drop offs enable our young people to freshen up for a job interview, coffee with an old friend or family member or to simply feel better for the day ahead. The saying is true ‘When you look good you feel good!’, especially when you are young. Participants can also grab a small amount of kitchen and housing items for when they first move into a place or they can pack a suitcase of all the required items they need for Drug/Alcohol Treatment.
