Temporary Location

We are pleased to announce that 1Up has acquired a temporary location so that we can continue to provide services that are important to single parent families, beginning on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 at:

Centennial United Church – Gymnasium

612 David Street

Our temporary business hours are:

Tuesdays: 1:00 – 6:30 pm

Wednesdays: 10:00 – 3:30 pm

Thursdays: 10:00 – 3:30 pm

Some basic practical services will be available immediately (including Healthy School Snacks), and additional services will be offered as soon as possible. We hope you will drop in for a visit next week. We will be ready to welcome you with refreshments and goodies.

1Up also continues to deliver the following core programs at other locations:

  • Counselling program
  • Parenting and life skills classes
  • Moms and Mentors program
  • Parent coaching

1UP is fully committed to supporting our member families, and to resuming full services as soon as possible. The 1Up Centre at 602 Gorge Road remains closed due to building issues that have now become critical due to new information regarding building safety. The Board of Directors and staff are working diligently to ensure a long-term location, and are actively working with our community partners to address the challenges we are facing. General inquiries can be made via email at info@1-up.ca or Facebook. Please do not use the Church phone number or email to contact staff.


We will continue to provide regular updates via Facebook and email as we work to resume additional services and practical supports. Again, we thank you for your patience. PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to receive unscheduled in-kind donations of any kind at this time. Please message us through Facebook or send an email to info@1-up.ca if you are wanting to donate to the Centre.
