Our Place Community of Hope provides a ministry of hospitality and presence to people experiencing mental health issues, through a community which seeks to include all people by affirming and empowering them toward personal and communal responsibility.
Founded in 1969 Our Place provides a front line response to the changing needs of people living with mental illness. In the late 1970’s and early 80’s there was a period of de-institutionalization – with the closing of psychiatric hospitals in favour of community based care. Unfortunately, there were and still are insufficient community services available to support the needs of people living with mental illness.
Our Place Community of Hope assists people in recovery in building skills for independent living and accessing other services and supports. Through its social recreation programs, Our Place continues to supply a safe, stable environment for its membership to meet, connect and build relationships.
Our Place now operates from 2:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Click here to view our current events calendar.
Our Place is grateful to its Catholic Charities for their ongoing support
to provide services to people living with mental illness!
