The Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation
ODBF supports Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation and the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation Community Fund through the generosity of our donors.
Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa
Every day, in every part of the city, as young people face difficult choices and life-changing events, the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa (YSB) supports them and their families. Since 1960, YSB has assisted tens of thousands of young people to find jobs, return to school, learn life skills, find shelter, choose a better path and feel hope for the future. YSB’s Drop-In Centre is one of the most important lifelines for youth at-risk in Ottawa’s downtown core. For many of the 1,200 street-involved and homeless youth who walk through the front doors, it is the first place they feel safe, and feel a sense of belonging.
Tim Horton Children’s Foundation
The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation is dedicated to fostering within the children who attend Camp des Voyageurs Tim Horton in Quyon Quebec the quest for a brighter future. A Foundation camp experience provides programs to help children from economically disadvantaged homes develop lifelong skills. For these children, opportunities and environments that promote their growth into healthy individuals are often limited. When they return home, they bring with them a positive attitude about their future, and the confidence to achieve goals they learned to set for themselves.
