Hi Everyone,

I am currently in the process of creating a new community organization located in Ottawa, called Saving Throw. We will provide board game nights for at-risk youth. The goals of theses meetings are to provide a safe, comfortable environment for the kids, increase their social and support networks, and of course have some fun.

In order to better facilitate the community we have created a survey with questions about when and where the nights should be held.

Regardless if you are from Ottawa or not we would appreciate your responses. You also do not have to be the parent of an at-risk child. All parents are welcome to fill out the survey, the more information we gather the better.

The link to the survey is below. Please feel free to private message me here or email savingthrowottawa@gmail.com with questions about the organization, donating, volunteering, or participating.

Thank you again for your help,
Sean

Seems to me that many of the youth at risk in Ottawa aren't communicating well with their parents.
There is an on-street organization, I believe, to support youth, whose name escapes me at the moment. Have you connected with anyone else to see how you can co-ordinate things?

We have contacted multiple existing organizations. They are currently passing out the survey. We also plan to do recruitment for the game nights through those organizations, psychologists, guidance counselors, and social workers.

I appreciate you talking the time to respond. If you happen to remember the name of the organization please let me know. Any and all help/advice/suggestions are appreciated.

Just to make it clear to everyone, you do not need to be the parent of an at-risk child to fill out our survey. We want as much data as possible, so any and all parents are welcome. (I've edited the top post to clear that up).

I believe I'm thinking of Youth Services. If you've reached out you may have connected with these folks, then.
Good luck with that.

They were definitely one of the first places I contacted. They are right next to The Loft/Level One (a frequent hangout) so the organization was easy to remember.

I appreciate all the detective work though and the advice. I'm always impressed with the kindness and support from this community (especially considering it's on the internet and all)
