About Atwell Centre
Atwell Centre is a faith-based charity that empowers women and men through hope, compassion and information in all of our services. Amongst our programs, we provide a Sexual Transmitted Infection (S.T.I) clinic, Pregnancy Assessment and Post-Abortion Support. We also provide an education program in sexual health and healthy relationships presented in schools and in our clinic. We partner with Halton Public Health and other community agencies to provide support and resources to our clients.
How and why did you decide to pursue your business?
Having seen a medical service gap surrounding sexual health education in the Halton area that the Hamilton community benefited from, is what led us to open our second Atwell location.
What are you most passionate about in your business?
We are passionate about empowering women and men facing unexpected pregnancies and post-abortion realities. We provide education, information, support and give practical assistance to women and their partners as they face important decisions about their pregnancy and sexual health.
What do you LOVE about Downtown Oakville?
We LOVE the community atmosphere, the warm welcome and the plethora of shops and services!
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise others
Regardless of a women’s choice with their pregnancy options, we are passionate about always supporting our clients with medically sound and compassionate care. Although we are a faith-based organization, faith and religion are conversations led by the client as part of our holistic care approach.
