The work of The HOPE Centre is much more than charity. With your help, we provide a full continuum of services and supports to individuals and families who are struggling with poverty related issues.
Mission Statement: The Hope Centre is committed to assisting and strengthening our community by attending to the basic needs of its vulnerable citizens. We also advocate to change the social structures that create their poverty, homelessness, and compromised health and well-being. This is achieved through the dedication of our staff, volunteers and available programs, which are designed to create positive opportunities and provide stability for those in need. To this end, we are committed to helping our community’s disadvantaged citizens support themselves and their families and persevere with a sense of dignity and purpose.
Coldest Night of the Year
The Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) is a fantastically fun, family friendly 2, 5 and 10km winter walk fundraiser that supports Canadian charities who serve the hungry, homeless, and hurting in cities across Canada.
The Street House
In May 2012, Raising the Roof offered the public an opportunity to learn about homelessness in an altogether different -- and incredibly moving -- way. The Street House, a unique street exhibit in downtown Toronto, was conceived and produced pro bono by the award-winning advertising agency Leo Burnett Canada in conjunction with the production company, FamilyStyle.
