Our Place Community of Hope offers a wide range of activities in a welcoming, supportive and safe environment that give participants the opportunity to meet, connect, build relationships and skills for independent living.
Our Place programs are strictly voluntary and anyone can join as they wish. Many of our new program participants choose to observe first and begin to get involved in activities that interest them when they feel more comfortable.
Regular programs facilitate bonding among Our Place Community of Hope participants by enabling small groups to participate together.
Our Place offers its participants a variety of social and recreational programs, including:
