We are excited to donate $10,000 to the Peel Children’s Centre (PCC) and $7,500 to Peel Children and Youth Initiative (PCYI).
Our contribution to Peel Children’s Centre will aid children with behavioural and/or anxiety challenges as well as to their families that would not otherwise be able to benefit from traditional care.
Established in 1984, Peel Children’s Centre serves the mental health treatment needs of children and youth (from birth to 17 years) living in the Region of Peel. Collette’s funding is earmarked toward the nonprofit’s Strongest Families Program, which provides faster access to high quality service by offering family “help at home” using cost-effective, evidence-based interventions delivered by a team of highly trained coaches from a call-centre base.
Collette’s funding toward PCYI will help offset the costs for its second annual Peel Youth Leaders Conference. The conference, held during the summer, offers training for young people in Peel that guide them in taking meaningful leadership roles in their community.
