Seeds of Hope Foundation
"Lazarus House - First Step"
Seeds of Hope is a charity with a 10-year history of operating two resource centres and five housing projects that work to stop the 'revolving door' of individuals moving from the streets to the court system to hospitalization and back to the street. The main focus has been to create 'centres of friendship' that are safe places where individuals who are at a crossroads in their lives can support one another. People can be at a crossroads in their lives for many reasons, including recovery from addiction or mental health challenges, unemployment or unfortunate life circumstances. Many bring skills that create an atmosphere of caring and support for one another.
