On October 21, 2022, the YWHO Network celebrated the grand opening of the Renfrew County Youth Wellness Hub.
The hub serves the entire County of Renfrew and offers a full range of integrated youth services to young people aged 12 to 25 years old and their families or support individuals.
The grand opening was full of activities, including hub tours, a ribbon cutting ceremony, snacks, music, and more. The event was open to all local youth, families, and community members as an opportunity to learn more about this new space dedicated to their well-being.
The Renfrew County Youth Wellness Hub will offer mental health support, help with substance use, primary care, educational, employment, and other social services. The hub will also provide recreational and skills and well-being programs, peer support and care navigation services – all free of charge and accessible for all.
“I feel so fortunate that so many people came out to join our celebration. I am beyond words to express how grateful I am to be able to work with the youth and families in this area that are so deserving of such a wonderful new service,” said Sarah Haaima, Hub Manager of Renfrew County Youth Wellness Hub.
The hub operates Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. at 278 Nelson Street in Pembroke, Ontario. Youth can access support through appointments, virtual services, or walk-in appointments as needed.
