New Premises coming soon!

 

premises

The start of 2016 saw YEHA move from their base on the Oldpark Road to just around the corner and into rooms at the old St Gemma’s High School.  After the closure of the school the building lay empty for just over 2 years and suffered damage by lack of use and exposure to the elements.  The building has now been reopened and is benefiting the local area by being used as a multi function community facility. YEHA moved into several rooms at the front of the building and whilst these have sufficiently met our needs we are preparing to move again! But not far, we will just be transferring services to a different part of the building.

Work is currently being carried out to transform some old classrooms on the upper floor into a new, modern and welcoming youth space.  This will incorporate a large multifunction groupwork room, smaller counselling/mentoring room, office space and eventually an outdoor area.

There will be a launch event held once the work has been completed so watch this space for details.

In the meantime if anyone would like more details on any of our services, or would like to become involved in any of our programmes, then give us a call, drop us a message or call in.

Concert of Hope a complete success!

 

concerthope

On 23rd April 2016 several hundred people from the Sacred Heart Parish came together to enjoy a ‘Concert of Hope’. Organised by a variety of people including Lighthouse, Sacred Heart Parish, YEHA Project and community representatives who had experienced loss, the hard work paid off on the evening with Brian Kennedy and the Gardiner Street Gospel Choir providing the upbeat music.

The concert was organised to provide a happy, uplifting message of hope to a community that has so often suffered loss.  The audience responded to the fantastic entertainment with energy and feedback after the show has been very positive.

At YEHA we can provide support to young people who are facing all sorts of issues in their lives and offer various support such as mentoring, counselling & groupwork.  If you would like to know more about our services please get in touch.
