Help us open Ottawa's first centre for men.

The Ottawa branch of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) will be Ottawa’s first health and social service hub uniquely dedicated to the unmet needs of boys, men, fathers and their families. Our programs include domestic abuse support for male victims, resources to promote father involvement after separation or divorce, and mental health services that reduce the stigmas that constrain men from seeking and finding help. These programs are largely unavailable in Ottawa and will address an urgent need.

Our fathers, sons, brothers and husbands are facing  challenges that are inadequately addressed. The experience of the CCMF sister agency in Toronto points to the good news; boys, men and fathers will readily access and benefit from the programs and services we will make available.

With your donation we will open a dynamic and intensively used facility in Ottawa that serves 200 clients through a combination of individual and group programs. We will launch the agency under the leadership of a full time Executive Director. We have already raised over $40,000 toward our budget of $75,000. You can be part of this exciting project to bring needed services to an overlooked group in society.

An official donation tax receipt will be issued by email for all donations over $10.
