Mission Statement

Vita Centre is dedicated to providing excellent support, education and counselling to vulnerable families, including pregnant and parenting youth, with the goal of empowering them to move forward and thrive.

Description

Vita Centre began as Vita Manor in 1989 with the goal of becoming a maternity resource in the Dufferin-Peel region. Through the years, the needs of our community have changed and so we have too. In 2008, we adopted the new name of Vita Centre and continued with a new mission - to provide more education and programming to a wider population.

Presently, Vita Centre provides assistance to more than 600 pregnant and parenting youth between the ages of 15 and 30 in Peel Region. Through its various counselling and youth centered programs, clients are able to make positive decisions for themselves and their child, are connected to community resources, helped to complete their education, attend parenting classes and are even provided with tangible supplies to help them with their parenting journey.
