Hope House Dedication & Ribbon Cutting

ADULT & TEEN CHALLENGE OPENS THEIR DOORS TO WOMEN WITH ADDICTIONS

HOPE HOUSE DEDICATION & RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY

February 3, 2019, 3-5pm @ 107 Johnson Ave, Thunder Bay (top floor)

 

Adult & Teen Challenge will be opening the doors to their newest 10-bed Hope House women’s recovery home in Thunder Bay this weekend. Thanks to the generous support of the community, local businesses and others who believed in the project, they completed the necessary renovations to open debt-free.

Adult & Teen Challenge has been serving the region of central Canada, through its Christian discipleship program and local outreaches, since 1995. Teaching biblical principles as a solution to life-controlling problems, they have seen hundreds of men and women find freedom from addiction and become successful, contributing members of their communities.

Sunday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony will mark the end of a year of renovations to rebuild Hope House above Adult & Teen Challenge’s Super Thrift Store at 107 Johnson Ave, and the start of a new journey for many women already on the waiting list for help.

Program Director Jennifer Ahuja, shares “We are thrilled to be expanding our ability to help the women of our region who struggle with life controlling addictions. Our hope is this new centre, this new home, will be a safe haven and place of healing for each one who bravely comes through its doors to find freedom and a brand new start in life.”
