The Robbie Dean Centre was established out of Robbie’s mother’s grief at losing her son due to lack of support available to help him during his depression. She wanted to do something to ensure other families in Renfrew County would not have to struggle so hard to get help in time of crisis.
After months of research and networking; the Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre opened its doors in June of 2013 thanks to financial support from the Ottawa Valley Rotary Clubs. It is a community funded, a registered charity.
Working with existing organizations and agencies, the Robbie Dean Centre continues to develop and implement programs to close these gaps and better meet the needs of our communities. The Robbie Dean Centre is determined to enhance the quality of life of those who live in Renfrew County.
It beats with the heart of those it supports. It lives because of them!
