In order to keep everyone safe during COVID-19, our drop-in location (Our Place Community of Hope) has made the difficult decision to not re-open the drop-in at this time.
We will be monitoring the number of cases closely and updating programs accordingly.
Take-out meals will be provided Monday-Friday between 2:00pm and 5:00pm.
Our Place Community of Hope works to provide a front-line response to those who are living in the community and experiencing mental health issues. The staff assist people in recovery in building skills for independent living and accessing other services and supports.
The staff also work to provide a safe and stable environment for members to meet, connect and build new relationships. Our Place offers a variety of social recreation programs throughout the week, as well as community meals.
All Our Place programs are voluntary and anyone can join. All Our Place members live with some form of mental illness, at varying levels of severity. Our Place provides a constant support network, an element which is key in the recovery process.

St. Michael’s Homes has recently received a $50,000 grant from United Way Greater Toronto, funded by ECSF. This will allow Our Place to safely develop mental health groups and social recreation programs that can be accessed virtually throughout the pandemic, and in-person when it is safe to do so. We are looking forward to providing these new and exciting services!
The "Relaunching social recreation activities for people living with mental health and addictions in the context of COVID-19" project is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and United Way Greater Toronto.
