Our guest speaker at our regular breakfast meeting on August 30, 2017, was Karen Craig from Living Rock Ministries. 

Karen Craig is a Registered Social Worker and Program Director for Living Rock.  Living Rock is a resource centre that engages, encourages and equips youth-at-risk and has been seeing lives change for 30 years.

Last year, Living Rock responded to over 32,000 visits, providing essential supports to one of Hamilton’s most vulnerable populations: youth between the ages of 13-25, who are affected by significant risk factors such as loss of family, poverty, substance misuse and mental health. These youth need support to navigate the social systems to find ways to meet their basic needs of food, education and shelter. The programs and services offered by Living Rock Ministries provide a continuum of care for youth and their children, while offering opportunities for personal development, life-skills and employment training.
