Check out the Day Program

At Hope Centre Clubhouse, we believe that work works. Our Work-Ordered-Day program is designed to motivate and encourage members to enhance their daily life skills by participating in a program, side by side with staff, to complete all the necessary tasks to operate the Clubhouse successfully. Building an atmosphere of co-ownership and co-operation within our Clubhouse ensure our members feel wanted, needed and valued. Although participation is voluntary, it is encouraged.

Kitchen Program

At Clubhouse, we believe that everyone should have access to hearty, nutritious meals. Hope Centre offers a kitchen unit that provides lunch to our members every day for $2.00 a meal. The Kitchen unit values the participation of our members to help budget our meals, grocery shop, prepare and serve our meals and assist with kitchen cleanup afterwards. 

Employment/Education

Hope Centre provides members with the opportunity to access employment and education opportunities. The Clubhouse provides ongoing support, encouragement and resources to members. The Clubhouse offers different types of employment support such as Transitional, Supported, Independent and Group employment.  

General Upkeep

Members and staff work side-by-side to complete general upkeep activities to ensure the Clubhouse runs smoothly and effectively. Members volunteer as much or as little as they want and only participate in activities that they feel comfortable participating in.
