About Ray of Hope Community Centre

Mark walks to Ray of Hope everyday. You can walk along side him on February 25th, and help Mark cope with life on the margin of society. By walking with Mark you bring peace and well being to the lives of many people like him.


The Ray of Hope Community Centre is a place of refuge for people in the Kitchener/Waterloo area who are experiencing homelessness or living in poverty. The hope you bring to Mark by supporting the Community Centre is found in a warm meal, a food hamper, a shower, a haircut, laundry facilities, and friends like you who are willing to demonstrate the love of Christ. Come walk with Mark and bring the peace and well being that you know so well to the life of someone who struggles with poverty and homelessness.
