What We Do
Outreach Programs

In the late 1990's, Youth Impact saw a gap in services and began offering various outreach programs, thus diversifying its mandate and moving beyond solely residential services.  The majority of these services operate out of the Youth QUEST Central building at 199 St. George Street in Moncton, NB.
