Nazareth House (opened in 1979)
Is a residence for 22 men with ongoing struggles; they have lost their families, resided in psychiatric wards, some have wandered the streets for more than ten years. Who now participate in yoga, field trip activities, and are completing work re-integration programs.
Anne’s House (opened in 2015) Many of the 30 women who moved into Anne’s arrived emotionally paralyzed, with only the clothes on their backs. They suffered with malnutrition, untreated addictions, mental illness, abandonment, abuse, and chronic poverty. These women now form a community which is supported by the staff, volunteers, health professionals, social workers, other organizations and neighbours.
Who We Are
Nazareth Community is a home environment with support for men and women who struggle with mental health issues, homelessness and addictions. Our residents enjoy celebrations, pet therapy, music, student stagieres, individual treatment plans and support. This is coordinated by a trained, empathetic staff, and assisted by our volunteer Board of Directors.
We have 3 locations; Nazareth for men, and Anne’s house for women and transgender women. Many of our residents “home” before was on the streets.
