OUR YOUTH
OUR STORY

The right services to youth and their families —
at the right time and in the right place.

The Youth Wellness Hub Windsor-Essex offers services to youth ages 12 to 25 without a wait list or referral. This one-stop-shop model of care allows for a multitude of services all under one roof in a youth friendly space.

 

When a youth or family member enters the building, they will be greeted by a friendly face. The Intake Clerk will help guide the way to the proper services and people to ensure a smooth and low stress experience.

 

Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YWHO) is an initiative that aims to bring the right services to youth (and their families) at the right time and in the right place.

 

Youth Wellness Hub Windsor-Essex is one of four new YWHO sites announced in Spring 2021 and there is now a temporary site at Maryvale until a permanent site is set up.
