ROCK is fully supporting the Province of Ontario’s plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and is following protocol to practice social distancing. In order to ensure your own health and safety, all in-person programming and walk-ins will be suspended until further notice.
We will remain available to our clients via phone support, email and the implementation of innovative services to support our program offerings for the duration of the provincial school closure.
ROCK is dedicated to supporting families during this difficult time. We are committed to live answering phone calls from the hours of 9 – 5 p.m. each business day. Families will have the ability to speak directly to a ROCK staff person who is available to answer questions. We have also created the opportunity to connect families to a pathway coordinator staff who will assess and support connection to brief virtual consultation services.

The expansion of our Pearl Street location in Burlington is underway. This expansion will increase the number of children, youth and families that we are able to serve. We will be able to provide the necessary mental health prevention and intervention programs and services in a timely fashion to those in need.
