Who Does Living Rock support?
Youth ages 13-25 who are at-risk of falling through the cracks in our community. Living Rock is responding to youth with a variety of risk factors such as poverty, mental illness, addictions and the disenfranchised. Together with the support of generous partners and supporters Living Rock aims to alleviate the effects of poverty and to provide opportunities for youth to move beyond their circumstances with the right supports in place.
Each year Living Rock Ministries responds to more than 20,000 youth visits. Living Rock seeks to ENGAGE youth where they are at, through meal programs, food bank and through safe and relevant social recreational programming. Living Rock ENCOURAGES youth through pre-natal and
post-natal care, housing, one to one and crisis support. Living Rock EQUIPS youth for a brighter future through pre-employment and employment programs.
Living Rock Ministries is a non-profit organization reaching out in the cultural language of youth since 1985. Living Rock offers youth-at-risk a place of belonging, safety and a bridge to the community, while supporting youth to develop a personal vision for their lives.
Our vision is to engage, encourage and equip youth.
In pursuit of our mission and vision, Christ has called us to value; justice, compassion, diversity, community and learning.
I really need to get off of the street and by talking to you, I am working towards that, and it also helps keep me away from trouble
This place is amazing, you guys started from the bottom and created program to help youth with any obstacle they face and there should be more place like this in Ontario.
The Living Rock… A godsend to some, a place of friendship to others, to me it is a place where I feel welcome and can, for a brief time, find solace and kindness from those who were kind enough to give their time and some things, though I would rather it not be needed, their hard earned money.
