Youth and families in our community are struggling.  The years of instability, lockdowns and isolation has had a grave impact on the mental health and well-being of so many in our community.  Self-referrals to our youth programs have increased 100% since before 2020.

Your donations to the John Howard Society of Peterborough allow us to offer more programming and supports that will improve community connections. Click Here to Donate
