Neighbourhood drop in center with programming for children and youth in Winnipeg's inner city
Founded in 1976, Rossbrook House is a neighbourhood centre for children, youth, and young adults. It offers a constant alternative to the destructive environment of the streets.
At her investiture into the Order of Canada in 1983, Rossbrook House founder Sister Geraldine MacNamara captured the essence of its mission:
No child who does not want to be alone, should ever have to be.
The vision of Rossbrook House is well expressed in the Creator's response to the prophet Micah:
What is required of us is simply this: to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with our God.
This is the goal, dream, and persistent endeavour of Rossbrook House, as we work to create and maintain a constant alternative to the destructive environment of the streets.
