On November 16th, Portage Governors Dianne Gillin and Jill Veale co-hosted an Awareness Evening in support of Portage Ontario at Peter and Dianne Gillin’s Forest Hill home. The event brought together over 60 guests—representing parents, educators, healthcare providers, and business professionals—to raise awareness about the important work Portage does helping youth in crisis with addiction.
Guest speaker, Mr. Peter Vamos, Executive Director of Portage, gave a brief history of the organisation and described Portage’s treatment approach, which is based on the principles of self-help and positive psychology. Participants had the opportunity to mingle and learn more about the Portage Program and its astounding track record of helping young people turn their lives around.
Portage wishes to thank everyone who participated and helped make the evening a success.
