These are exciting days in Guelph-Wellington as we watch the final pieces of construction happening on the new home for all children and youth mental health and developmental services in the community.
Located at 737 Woolwich St N in Guelph, CMHA Waterloo Wellington‘s Children and Youth Services building will be a hub for child and youth mental health services as well as developmental services in Guelph-Wellington. The new space will also allow CMHA Waterloo Wellington’s children’s and administrative services to centralize in one Guelph location. Construction began in August 2021, and we anticipate occupying the building in the Fall of 2023.
This NEW, 48,000 sq ft, three-floor building will create a “one-stop-shop” for over 30 service providers, making it easy and seamless for 9,000 local children, youth up to age 26, and their families to get what they need to reach their full potential.
Your Support is Needed
As we anticipate opening the doors of this innovative service model, we are also facing difficult funding realities. The financial pressures for the remaining capital expenditures are risking our ability to deliver the services this building was designed for – at a time when service needs are rising, and our kids are facing a mental health crisis.
The real gap to open these doors and welcome our community can only be closed by your support. Now is the time for you to stand alongside other local businesses, corporate partners, and the members of this community who have invested in this innovative project.
Together we will celebrate with our community what this transformational space will mean for our children and youth today and for generations to come.
Part of the first floor and all the second floor will be home to CMHA Waterloo Wellington’s children’s mental health and developmental programs and services including crisis support, youth outreach support, service coordination, mental health support in childcare and early years, child psychiatry, family support options, infant and child development support and a walk-in service for children, youth, and families. The first floor will also be home of the Grove Youth Wellness Hub.
The second floor has a commercial kitchen and program spaces that community partners and members of the community will be able to access.
The third floor will be home to our administrative offices and our Mental Health Promotion and Education programs which are available to all members of our community at no cost, providing participants with valuable learning opportunities that develop skills to support themselves and others. Multi-purpose spaces throughout the building will be used to deliver in person workshops to the community.
Approximately 28.5% of the clients served by CMHA Waterloo Wellington within this new facility will be served through Children’s Developmental Services and 71.5% by Children’s Mental Health services.
