Check out Anago’s Strategic Plan for 2017-2020
For more than 50 years, Anago has been building stronger communities by helping at-risk youth and vulnerable adults navigate critical transitions in their
lives. As a registered not-for-profit charity, Anago’s work focuses on community
justice, mental health and developmental disability services, helping to ‘lead
from one place to a better place’, a translation of the original Greek ana-ago.
Anago was founded on the belief that each individual has gifts to share and differing abilities, not disabilities. Adopting a relationship-based focus to our work, Anago provides programs and services to female youth with concurrent mental health diagnoses, male youth in conflict with the law and persons with developmental challenges.
Anago receives financial support from government, private donors and corporate sources. These dollars fund initiatives and residential programs throughout London, Middlesex and Huron Counties, including a therapeutic care residence, youth detention centres, residential homes and community support programs for persons with mental health and/or developmental challenges. Anago is proud to build on its strengths and more than fifty-year heritage in cultivating opportunities for at-risk youth and vulnerable adults to achieve independence through integration into communities of support.”

Imagine being raised in an environment where you do not feel safe at home – some, most or all of the time. Imagine the one(s) you turn to in time of need not being there when you need them most. I was raised in a similar atmosphere where both of my parents struggled with alcohol. Almost every weekend, they turned to alcohol and it often times got violent. When sober, they were amazing! When intoxicated…not so much so. (As an aside, my mother passed away a number of years ago from cancer and I’m proud to say my dad for several years now rarely consumes alcohol!) I am not perfect, but I was fortunate to find what I consider the right paths in life. Unfortunately, many in similar and varying related circumstances do not. Being a police officer in London, Ontario, I sadly see the results of this far too often.
I am currently a board member for a wonderful non-profit organization that provides young males who’ve found themselves in conflict with the law, opportunities to learn that life does not have to continue down this path. Anago operates both King Street Detention Centre and Genest Detention Centre in London (among services for other vulnerable individuals within London and other surrounding communities) and strives to provide a safe and therapeutic environment for all. www.anago.on.ca
A couple years ago, I had a life-changing experience after my wife paid for a skydive for me (silly me for mentioning I’d like to try it ). Jumping from a plane 8000′ in the sky (and surviving), made the inspirational statement of “being able to do anything you want in life” a reality for me. After that, I thought “what next?”! After meeting a couple people who had climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, I then started thinking about tackling the challenge. With the support and encouragement of my wife, I committed to the challenge of climbing and summiting the 19,341′ high mountain in Africa…in January 2017.
Realizing that we’re all faced with many mountains throughout our lives – some more difficult to climb than others – I am incorporating this fundraising initiative with my climb for Mount Kilimanjaro. Any amount you are able to donate will support Anago with providing more opportunities for these young males in hopes that they too can get on the right track in life and conquer any mountains they are faced with.

Anago, Genest Detention Centre is a secure detention/custody facility for male youth. We strive to provide a safe and therapeutic environment for all. It has truly transcended to ALL over the years. This video is of our “Momma Duck”. She has been coming to Genest for the past six years to nest. She has hatched 7 nests of ducklings in one of our flowerboxes, surrounded by our facility.
Every year, we have a ‘duck migration’ in which we have all the youth in our facility assist to walk the ducks from the courtyard, through the school hallway to our outside yard, so they can make their way to the pond a couple doors down. This year, Momma Duck hatched her ducklings just prior to Children’s Mental Health week and so we had a “Duck March for Children’s Mental Health
