The CPC will be working with Coast Mental Health and Provident to provide a series of presentations for the community.  Education is the key to help us make the right decisions and help the youth as they transition into society.    We are very proud to be a partner in such an endeavor. It is through this kind of collaboration that we wirenfrew house 17ll be able to help everyone in our community  live fruitful lives.
