ReConnect provides short-term and long-term assistance through outreach to youth and adults who are homeless or at-risk of being homeless, all in an effort to increase their knowledge of available resources (i.e. food, clothing, shelter, education, employment and counseling) and to provide support in accessing them. Contact YMCA ReConnect of Greater Moncton at 506-856-4362.
Drop-in services are available at ReConnect Monday to Thursday from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. Volunteers are on hand to provide food, refreshments, activities and a listening ear.
“Partners for Change” is an alternative to giving change directly to panhandlers, and was launched in 2002. Funds from the collection boxes placed in local businesses help provide the fundamental resources like food and clothing to people in need through the YMCA ReConnect Program. “Working for Change” provides job opportunities to clients of ReConnect through downtown businesses.
The success of the Working for Change program depends solely on the business communities’ support and participation. ReConnnect is always looking to form new partnerships with businesses. These partnerships will further help to continue the reintegration of our clients to society.
