About Our Place Community of Hope of St. Michael's Homes

Our Place Community of Hope is a program of St. Michael's Homes.  It 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. People take part in selected voluntary activities rather than “programs”, helping them to build social skills and gain leadership experience. Our Place is a response to the needs of people with mental health problems especially now when there are still insufficient community services available to support the needs of people living with mental illness.
