Funding, Government Support and Philanthropic Partners
YWHO was established in 2017 with the generous support of the Ontario government and philanthropic partners to launch the first 10 Youth Wellness Hubs as a demonstration of the YWHO integrated youth services model. At the end of the demonstration phase, these existing sites were provided annualized funding by the Ontario government. The ongoing support of government has facilitated the expansion to 22 fully funded YWHO networks. In addition, philanthropic donors have supported YWHO to innovate and mobilize knowledge.
