Our Place Community of Hope offers a wide range of activities that are all designed to provide our participants the opportunity to interact with others – building social skills, tolerance for conflict and a support network of friends.
Activities include movie nights, tournaments and prayer and bible reflection. Our Place programs are strictly voluntary and anyone can join as they wish. Many of our new program members choose to observe first and begin to accept invitations to participate in activities that interest them when they feel more comfortable.
Regular programs facilitate bonding amongst Our Place Community of Hope members by enabling smaller numbers of members to participate together.
Our Place offers its members a variety of social and recreational programs, including:
