The Kopczyks have been actively reaching the at-risk youth and the homeless population of Brantford since 2002. Why Not City Mission's first program is still providing food and clothing for those in need. WNCM addresses the challenge of young people engaging in destructive behaviour and suffering from personal struggles such as drug and alcohol addictions, homelessness, poverty, violence and poor self-esteem by cultivating meaningful relationships with the at-risk youth who come through the doors. Why Not offers programs that foster social development, personal growth and empowerment of homeless and at-risk youth. Some people see things and ask “Why?”; we dream things that never were and say “Why Not?”
