Winnipeg Inner City Missions of the Presbyterian Church in Canada will be holding an open house on Thursday, October 19, 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of A Place of Hope.
Anishinabe Place of Hope, located in the Centennial/Logan North Neighbourhood in Winnipeg, is a First Steps to Employment Project with transitional housing unit for single adults age 30-50 who are seriously focused on obtaining employment with a livable income. APOH provides a safe, supportive, drug and alcohol-free environment. Those accepted into the Project live in one of 19 bachelor suites for a period of 3-5 years while they pursue training/education that will give them better opportunities for employment.
In addition to the Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Margaret Mullin, there are two social workers who provide guidance and support to the residents. It has been demonstrated clearly that clean, safe and affordable housing in addition to being surrounded by professionals who can act as mentors, provides a winning combination for individuals, families and the community at large.
Please join us in this celebration of success for Anishinabe Place of Hope and the people whose lives are enhanced by the work of our dedicated staff and donors.
