In 2013, in collaboration with CMHA Grey Bruce, we were recipients of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant in the amount of $63,600. This grant has allowed us to maintain an office in Walkerton while creating awareness, promotion and funding opportunities for our online counselling as well as developing working relationships with other youth mental health resources in Grey Bruce and surrounding area.
In 2014 in collaboration with Jack Lambertus Insurance Broker Ltd., Walkerton, we submitted our plan to create a resource centre to provide workshops, seminars and support groups, as well as piloting face to face and group counselling, to the Aviva Community Fund. Through a voting procedure and review by a panel of judges, we were granted $130,000 in their large funding category as well as the designation of At Risk Youth Award. Through their generosity, our new permanent location will be open soon.
