Community Resources

This page contains an on-going resource list designed to assist you in getting any extra support you may need through our community partners. There are many organizations in place to help support you while dealing with traumatic events and oppression in Nogojiwanong – Peterborough & the Kawarthas region. We are hoping to add as many groups as possible so that we have one database where everyone seeking help for a variety of concerns can access what they need to. Clicking on the underlined names will take you to the group’s main website, we will also link to their facebook and twitter profiles if they have them.

Thank you so much to all of the staff and volunteers who make these organizations possible, you are making Peterborough a safer, more positive space for all to enjoy. <3
