How you can help
Established in 2013, Restoring Hope Ministries is poised to address these gaps because of the expertise we have developed in working
with vulnerable youth. Over this time, we have built an organization from the grass roots into one that is thriving and sustainable. We understand how to listen to the needs of the youth and have developed programs that did not exist.
We work with service providers across the city to ensure that our programs continue to complement and fill gaps in the supports available to street-engaged youth.
Our team is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to create solutions for the most difficult challenges our youth are facing. We understand that our youth do not go in a one-size-fits-all box. Therefore, we focus on creating programs that are low-barrier and allow a large variety of youth to access these services. Lastly we have developed key relationships with other services in Ottawa so that we can work collaboratively to address the complex needs which currently exist.
Our relentless dedication and passion for these youth is making a difference and we will continue thanks to your support and thanks to such a loving community that believe in their youth and their hidden potential.
