Why Giving Matters

Giving support to The George Hull Centre is giving hope to children, youth and their families.


One in five Ontarians under the age of 17 has a mental health issue causing significant distress and impairing their functioning at home, at school, with peers or in the community.  These problems are painful, serious and very real, and they can happen to any young person, regardless of age or circumstance.  Left untreated, kids in distress can turn to drugs and alcohol, become suicidal, drop out of school, become violent, or withdraw into silence and isolation.

But there is hope.

At The George Hull Centre for Children and Families, we work with children from birth to age 18, providing comprehensive, family-centered treatment, including specialized schooling, outpatient, residential and substance abuse treatment.  We also deliver a range of focused and accessible prevention and educational programs in the community.  Each year we see over 4,500 families – which means we are not only helping 4,500 kids, but also the parents and siblings of 4,500 kids, the schools they attend and the communities in which they live.

You, too, can provide hope and healing for children, youth and families who are struggling with mental health issues by supporting the work of The George Hull Centre.  We appreciate each and every gift made, and there are many ways to do so.
