New Information for New Groups Coming in Early 2021

While our day programme is paused due to Covid-19 and staffing limitations, we are currently offering weekly Living Free Groups for a limited number of participants.

The Living Free "Insight"group is a faith-based discussion group that addresses life-controlling issues by exploring and building character.  This group meets on Tuesdays at 6:30pm for approximately 12 weeks, in a physically-distanced environment.  This Living Free "Insight" Group is facilitated by persons with lived-experience.

Registration for fall/winter 2020 is currently closed.  

If you are interested in registering for an upcoming group, message us here or call Hope House at 705-503-HOPE (4673), and we will contact you with details.
