This brand is more than just a brand, it’s a revolution. This brand is for Niagrans, by Niagrans. Whether you live in the metropolis known as St. Catharines, the tourist district of Niagara Falls, the heart of Wine Country known as Niagara-on-the-Lake, the South Coast (Port Colborne, Fort Erie, Wainfleet), the rural towns of Lincoln, West Lincoln & Grimsby or right in the centre of Niagara (Welland & Pelham), everything we make is made for you. Wearing our clothing will show everyone that you are proud to be from our great region, and that you believe in Niagara being united as one.
The RRPC Innovation Foundation recognizes the value of investing in youth to ensure good social, emotional, and mental health well being. We also know that when youth are supported, they can achieve their goals.
Here are some of the ways in which we support youth mental health in our community:
The STEP Youth Resource Centre opened in 2019 and funded by The RRPC Innovation foundation, provides free support services, life skills, and private confidential one-on-one counselling by a registered social worker for youth ages 14- 24 in the St. Catharines and the greater Niagara Region They provide programs for youth that will engage them in activities on a range of topics and develop community connections. Programs are client-focused, and client directed. Current hours are by appointment only Monday to Friday 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. For more information visit www.stepniagara.ca or contact STEP Youth Resource Centre at 289-668-0667
The RRPC Innovation Foundation understands when thrust into dealing with grief without the proper supports in place, it can have a lack of healing on our physical, emotional, and mental states which can over time, lead to a recurring cycle of grief.
Through our financial support to Education Foundation of Niagara DSBN students in need have access to mental health services to heal with grief counsellors who will provide clinical supports to help them effectively cope with grief, and loss of a family member or significant person in their life.
We are committed to empowering youth across all twelve of Niagara’s municipalities ensuring youth are mentally healthy with support systems in place, equipped to cope with life’s challenges and achieve their goals.
