Formerly Building Futures

WE ARE A

COLLABORATIVE

PARTNERSHIP

 

We are unique in that we are three community agencies coming together to offer free, wraparound services to current and former Youth In Care ages 15-29 in Manitoba.  

 

We support youth in a variety of areas including mental health, housing,  employment, education, and financial counselling to assist with successful transitions into adulthood.

Our services are designed to help youth reach their goals and fulfill their highest potential.
