Supporting Our Community – Pathstone’s River House RENO

Pathstone has purchased 102 River Road in Welland in order to help Niagara’s youth in South Niagara.

With mental health struggles on the rise, Pathstone is making a commitment to bring mental health services closer to families in Niagara South.

Pathstone's goal is to ensure kids are in care and not sitting on a wait list which has begun to happen over the past two years. (current waitlist is just under 800 kids)

Pathstone's solution is to reach into every corner of our community, enabling them to see more kids and keep them closer to home. Nearly 40 percent of the kids and families they see are from Niagara South. That means, parents and caregivers are investing endless hours driving children to and from St. Catharines for mental health support.

Roman, Anna and Family are honoured and proud to support Pathstone Foundation right here in our City of Welland.

If you are interested in supporting Pathstone Foundation or learning more about the services Pathstone Mental Health provides, contact Kim Rossi at: or directly at 289-969-8342

Join me in the monthly giving club and sign up to become a monthly donor today. After all, the Centre is Niagara's best kept secret that we can't afford to lose.

Welland Rotary Members unveil a new street sign On September 12, 2018, Welland Mayor Campion, representatives from Habitat For Humanity Niagara and Members of Welland Rotary gathered at the intersection of Frazer Street and Mill Street in Welland to ‘unveil’ a new street sign.

This sign is a new concept for the City. The Commemorative Street Naming Program recognizes local organizations that have made contributions in the community based on historical content and/or community involvement. Although Frazer Street will retain its legal street name, the new Welland Rotary Way will stand as a reminder and observe how the Rotary Club of Welland made significant contributions to the Habitat for Humanity Niagara build on Frazer Street.

“I’m proud of the leadership Rotary Members provide both within the local community and the community at large,” said Welland Rotary President David Alexander. He continued, “In this case, four Rotarians, Nick Bodo, Paul Leon, Roman A. Groch, and Graham Speck, stepped up and supported this initiative. We are also proud of our partnership with Habitat For Humanity Niagara.”

He is a supporter of youth programs and is committed to building a vibrant community. One example of this commitment was his donation to create the Groch Family Fund, an endowment fund within the Children and Youth in Recreation Fund, to support and develop tomorrow's youth.

the Niagara Community Foundation created the Children and Youth in Recreation Fund because we know the value of having kids taking part in sports, recreation and cultural activities, both now and in the future.
