Facility Information

In the Vale Unit we have a full size gym stocked with all types of equipment, a commercial size kitchen, craft room, and computer room. In these areas we run all different types of programs. In the gym we have VHL, Staff vs. Kids, and team building activities. In the kitchen we run cooking classes and supper clubs. The craft room is used for homework club, video games, seminars, and of course, crafting. In the computer room the members have the chance to research the internet, complete homework, or just play games.

The Vale Unit has its own 15 seat passenger van. Once a week the members and staff hop in the van and cruise into the community for outings to places like, parks, movies, swimming, and many many more.

If all of this sounds like fun, then come on out and meet our friendly staff and amazing kids! The Vale Unit is located off James St. and across from the Kinsmen fields.

Both Units are lucky to recieve funds from the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism & Culture Industries. We partner with Dilico YOW Program, Anishnawbe Mushkiki, Frontier College, CAHEP and Science North to assist us in delivering amazing programs for our members.
