Sexual Health Options, Resources and Education (SHORE) Centre

2015 Investee

For 45 years, SHORE Centre has been Waterloo Region’s trusted source for accurate sexual health education and confidential pregnancy options support.

The Sexual Health Options, Resources and Education (SHORE) Centre, was founded in 1972 as Waterloo Region’s Planned Parenthood affiliate. With logistical support from SVP Waterloo Region Partners, they re-branded to SHORE Centre in 2016 to better reflect the full range of services and programs they offer, including a Newcomer Women’s Health Program (offered in many languages), sexual education resources and support for teachers, parents and caregivers, workshops for youth and adults with developmental disabilities, and information on pregnancy options.
