Community Based Programs
Generally created for youth ages 12-24, community based programs are designed to make services and necessities more accessible to youth and families in Shelburne County.
sEXUAL vIOLENCE pREVENTION
Did you know that the Our House Youth Wellness Centre has a sexual violence prevention program? This is a new-ish program at the centre and is entirely funded by the Department of Community Services as part of the provincial Sexual Violence Prevention Strategy. We are only one of three programs like this funded in the entire province! Melissa is the main outreach worker for this program. If you have questions or want more information about this program feel free to contact her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. So much of the work we do at Our House works toward the prevention of sexual violence, this specially funded program helps us do even more!
Little Free Pantry
Our Little Free Pantry is full of non-perishable foods and is for anyone who may need to access it! The pantry is available 24/7.
We would like to thank Kelly Wolve-Enslow and the O2 program at SRHS for providing us with the pantry as well as 100 Women who care for allowing us to continue Project Food another year.
Part of our Covid- 19 Response is to create food boxes filled as needed with both perishable and non-perishable items. These boxes are curated to provide temporary food relief for youth and families in need of support!

To meet youth where they are, we visit youth in Secondary Schools across Shelburne County. This is usually done during lunch periods to provide support, help support clubs and provide snacks.
Schools, teachers, support staff, and administrators play a big role in a young person's life so we also do our best to help support staff, clubs and school events.
Staff can be found:
Barrington Municipal High School - Fridays during both the lunch breaks in the Music Room!
Lockeport Regional High School- Thursdays 10:30 - 2pm in room #112
Shelburne Regional High School - Fridays, 10:30 - 1pm in the Outer Guidance Area.
