Belkin Communities of Hope

A Christ-centred community embracing diversity in meeting human needs.

We serve a diverse population, meeting many from all walks of life. In times of unimaginable hardships, susceptibility to losing hope and feeling despair is incredibly pervasive, especially for those without a community of support. Belkin Communities of Hope strives to be a safe space for healing. Our goal is to empower those who are wrestling with hopelessness—to support the rebuilding of their lives in a community that is grounded in hope, faith and compassion.

Currently, Belkin Communities of Hope is comprised of four community programs: Belkin House, Grace Mansion, Richmond House and Illuminate.
