The Hope Centre
Our mission is to assist the most vulnerable citizens in Welland and the surrounding area by providing food and housing stability, and to empower change in their lives by increasing their future resilience to poverty and increasing their capacity to be self-sustaining through counselling and training.
We advocate to change the social structures that creates poverty, homelessness, and compromised health and well-being. This is achieved by the dedication of our staff, volunteers and through the available programs and services, which are designed to create positive opportunities for individuals and families.
For almost 50 years, The Hope Centre has helped to build and to strengthen Welland and the surrounding area by providing residents access to our Soup Kitchen, Food Bank, Housing Stability programs and many other services.
We build and strengthen our community by responding to the needs of its people
Hope is an individual’s virtue, and personal empowerment is the essential element that fuels The Hope Centre’s approach to delivering one-on-one services. Our involvement in community development and advocacy work are guided by our core values: Stability, Direction and Empowerment.
