The Cherry Blossoms are out in High Park.  So, we have switched the outings around.  We will go to High Park this Thursday - and to Carlton Cinema NEXT Thursday, May 4th.

Tuesday Feb 28th was Lindi's last day at work before her Maternity Leave.

There was a giant card,  many hugs and a few tears.

By Friday Lindi had her baby - a beautiful baby girl, Lila.

Congratulations from everyone at Our Place.

Saturday January 7, Our Place members were treated to a presentation by   Raja Raudsepp from Toronto and Region Conservation, complete with samples of pelts, plants and turtle shells.  Participants also made 'seed balls' of natural flowers that they will be able to 'plant' in ravines and vacant lots this spring.


Partnering with Toronto Public Health and City of Toronto Parks and Recreation, Our Place provided 5 weeks of Diabetes Prevention education and a Physical Fitness sampler.  Our Place members were able to try Dancersize, Hatha Yoga, Low Impact Aerobics, Tai Chi and a Stress Management Guided Meditation.  Over the five weeks, 92 people took part in some sort of physical activity - mostly activities they had never tried before.

Our Place Community of Hope's mission is to provide a welcoming, supportive and safe environment where people living with mental illness can find community and joy. Founded in 1969 by a Franciscan priest, Our Place's drop-in centre offers social recreation programs where people can meet, connect and build relationships. We also assist individuals in building recovery skills for independent living and accessing other services and supports.
Car Wash

Again this summer, program participants led a series of Community Car Washes that raised over $600 for special events at the centre and an extra trip out of the city to The Peace Ranch.
