Your gift will enable Yorktown Family Services to continue to provide mental health services for children, youth and families, and shelter from abuse for women and children in under-resourced communities.
In Toronto, we are experiencing critical problems with getting timely and appropriate mental health support for children and youth. Young adults, in particular, often suffer wait-times of a year or more to receive mental health services. And according to national statistics compiled by the Canadian Women`s Foundation, on any given night in Canada, about 300 women and children are turned away because shelters are already full.
Yorktown believes that everyone should have access to mental health support right when they need it and introduced the what’s up walk-in® clinic five years ago. Open five days a week, the what’s up walk-in provides a place to get reassurance and clinical counselling right away. Yorktown`s Violence Against Women’s outreach workers are out in the community helping women connect to shelter, legal aid, and counselling to support them in leaving lives of abuse.
Mental health issues and abuse are not isolated events; they happen among us and to us all the time. By giving generously to Yorktown Family Services you are ensuring that children and youth will have somewhere they can turn to get mental health support and women and children will find the safe haven they deserve.
