The Challenge

Got a big-hearted business, workplace, group, church, or community? Step up and join the Challenge to compete for your local pride in support of CNOY. Check the National Challengeboard to see more!

About Jericho Road

We are a community of people who strive to move from addiction to connection through addiction recovery, peer support, community engagement and spiritual development.


Our 9-month residential addiction treatment program is the first step in the long journey of recovery for many of our clients. We share our own lived experience, strength and hope through peer mentorship and the 12 Steps not only to our clients but to their friends, family and greater community as well.


We do recover, together.


About Capital City Mission

Capital City Mission exists to meet the needs of the unemployed and street involved in Ottawa’s Lowertown, by demonstrating God’s love. The Drop-In is a first point of contact for many searching for health care, addiction services, mental health support, and housing options.


Many of our friends struggle with mental health issues and addictions resulting in isolation from the broader community. Our purpose is to provide a safe, quiet, and respectful space that fosters friendships and community. Together we make a home.


Walk with us this February!
