New Centre of Hope Opens in Port Hardy 

Some very exciting news from Port Hardy this past March. The new Centre of Hope facility has finally opened. After two years of intense negotiations, drawings, plans, fundraising and all that other fun stuff, the Centre opened its doors on March 1st.

The facility, which is now owned by The Army, will offer a variety of programs and services designed to serve the Mount Waddington community of over 11,000 people. They will offer a meal program, computer resource room, and 12 year-long shelter beds. In a community dealing with severe poverty and higher-than-average rates of alcohol consumption the Centre of Hope will also provide medical services and harm reduction, as well as space for AA meetings.

With a team of 16 enthusiastic and committed staff, the Centre of Hope promises to be a shining light in the community, and we could not be happier for Keith, Violet, Michael, and the rest of their team … “It was a group effort … God-led and he used everyone.”
