A United Way-supported neighbourhood drop-in centre, Rossbrook House was founded in 1976 by Sister Geraldine MacNamara and some inner city youth with a simple mission: “No child who does not want to be alone, should ever have to be.

Phil spoke about how youth at Rossbrook can grow from young and sometimes troubled kids into leaders and mentors of other kids who in turn become the next generation of leaders. It’s a true cycle of positive mentorship creating better futures!
