Kasondra Cohen-Herrendorf launches Cohen Centre for Social Enterprise supporting at-risk youth

A VIP-only crowd of more than 200 people attended Face of Today’s 10th anniversary gala and the launch of the Cohen Centre for Social Enterprise at the family’s iconic Dominion Building at 207 West Hastings in Vancouver. The event, which raised over $80,000, was hosted by We Charity co-founder Craig Kielburger and kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by three generations of the Cohen family. Guests were treated to a special performances by Sarah McLachlan School of Music students as well as Juno-nominated singer and producer Tyler Shaw.

The Cohen Centre is a benchmark resource centre providing crucial services and programming to positively impact mental health for at-risk youths in Vancouver. 
The Centre is the brainchild of Kasondra Cohen-Herrendorf, an advocate for improving mental health in youth.  A sanctuary for at-risk youths in Vancouver, the Centre will provide access to fitness, nutrition, yoga and counselling, as well as music and art programs for young people in Vancouver.
Last year, Face of Today Foundation (FOT) and We announced a partnership to help bring We Well-being to life, a new We initiative to empower people of all ages with tools, resources and capacity-building opportunities to promote and nurture their own and their community's well-being.
