Reconnect Street Intervention Program

Reconnect, located at 575 Main St, provides short-term and long-term assistance through outreach to youth and adults who are homeless or at-risk of being homeless, all in an effort to increase their knowledge of available resources (i.e. food, clothing, shelter, education, employment and counseling) and to provide support in accessing them.

Drop-in services are available at Reconnect Monday to Thursday from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Volunteers are on hand to provide food, refreshments, activities and a listening ear.

YMCA Caring Community Food Bank

The YMCA Caring Community Food Bank is committed to building a stronger, healthier community by providing individuals and families with access to fresh and non-perishable food items.  The food bank serves the Greater Moncton downtown core and sees over 500 clients each month.  The food bank is able to offer this service because of community support, community partnerships and volunteers. 

The YMCA Caring Community Food Bank works to impact hunger in the community by providing food hampers with enough food for up to 3 days (depending on donations).  The food bank can be accessed once a month by providing a valid Medicare card for each member of the family and proof of address, income and expenses (ie: pay stub, rent receipt, etc.). 

Our food bank is open every Tuesdays abd Thursdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and offers a safe and comfortable environment where you can enjoy a coffee while you wait. 

Donations are always welcome and always needed.  Items we are often in need of include:

  • Meat (canned tuna, chicken, ham, etc.)
  • Beans
  • Canned or powdered milk
  • Fruits and Veggies

We also accept donations of hygiene products, baby food and diapers and have a fridge for fresh meat, produce and milk.

For more information on how to access the food bank, donate or volunteer, please contact Jaime MacLellan, Food Centre Coordinator, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or 857-0606.




Alternative to suspension

Alternative Suspension is a resource at the disposal of high schools, offering them support for students who, for different reasons, are temporarily suspended from the school they attend. The goal of this project is to decrease the number of repeated suspensions by offering young people an opportunity to transform the time they spend on suspension into a positive experience fostering self-development and self-reliance, in an environment that encourages self-esteem, the acquisition of social skills and the promotion of self-respect as well as respect for others; all of which is accomplished through educational workshops, individual interventions and group activities. A suspension from school represents a failure for the student, their parents and the school. Once the school resorts to suspension, it is important to make the time spent away from school an overall success, for everyone involved.
