Our Programs

There is no charge for our services. We are well connected in the community and make sure you will be, too.

Youth group participant

“My experience with YRC has been nothing less than life changing for me. When referred to YRC our family was deep in crisis, with escalating risky adolescent behaviours, a severe lack of effective communication and a profound sense of hopelessness and despair.
