Our Place Community of Hope's mission is to provide a welcoming, supportive and safe environment where people living with mental illness can find community and joy.


As of January 1, 2020, Our Place became a program of St. Michael's Homes. By joining togehter, we are in a position to ensure that the excellent services that the two organizations have provided for many years are sustained and strengthened.

As a program of St. Michael's Homes, Our Place is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Our Place is open from 2:00 pm to 8:15 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Come visit us at our location in the basement of the Galilee Korean Presbyterian Church at 1183 Davenport Road in Toronto, near Ossington Avenue (entrance on Delaware Avenue). Our Place is primarily funded by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Toronto.
