Arrabon House

Let's get a sweat on!

Whether you’re a runner, biker, or step counter, it’s hard to deny the benefit of a solid exercise routine in normal circumstances, but in covid times, it’s a must.

Arrabon House is a youth home for survivors of abuse, trauma and mental health challenges, aged 13-24 years.  The pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of many of their residents.  The staff at Arrabon House are hoping that a bit more exercise will offer some relief to the stress and anxiety that is all consuming these days.

How you can help

We’re putting the call out for a used Treadmill.  If you and your running apparatus are breaking up, why not find a new home for your sweat inducing friend?  The youth at Arrabon House will love (and curse when struggling to catch their breath) your generosity!

Arrabon House offers counselling, mentoring, and life skills coaching to young women, including youth who are transitioning, between the ages of 13-24. Their 24-hour residential program is offered to women and those who identify as female between the ages of 13-19 in the Parkdale neighbourhood of Toronto. Many of their residents are survivors of abuse, trauma, and mental health challenges. Through a safe, healing environment, they empower these youth to grow to their full potential and ease their transition into adulthood and independent living.

Arrabon is a Greek word that signifies a promise of new things to come, of hope. Which is exactly what they provide for the hundreds of youth who walk through their doors every year.

I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help
