About HOPE House

Throughout COVID-19, HOPE House responded quickly by remaining open and providing urgent food relief and other essential programming such as counselling, clothing, and system navigation support. Demand for our services nearly doubled and will inevitably continue to rise. HOPE House must remain scalable and nimble to meet this emerging need. We are an independent local charity that is entirely funded by our community. Your participation in the CNOY helps fund critical poverty relief services and will change lives.
