The Meeting Place Centre for Growth and Healing is a registered non-profit charitable organization that has been in existence since 2002. Funds are raised primarily through community supported events and activities generated by the volunteer Board of Directors in partnership with individuals businesses and religious and service organizations.
Proceeds provide financial help to support the healing of individuals living in Muskoka who have limited means and who are experiencing mental health challenges. An educational program for senior high school students is also offered for those who are suffering from trauma related mental health issues. The Meeting Place also tries to raise awareness of the effects of trauma. Trauma can include physical, sexual or emotional abuse or bullying; domestic violence; accident illness or loss; abandonment or neglect.
