Raise A Roof

We need a new home!

We’re eager to help more women experience recovery, find healing, and build new, supportive relationships.

We urgently need to move to a larger building to meet with the growing number of women who are coming to us for support.

A Door Like No Other

Nicole walked through the door at Sophia for the first time in April 2009, encouraged by a family member who knew she needed help. At 19 years old, Nicole was struggling with alcohol and multiple other substances.  She met with a counsellor and soon began attending group programs. Embraced by the women at the centre, Nicole started on her recovery journey.

Her courage and the support she found at Sophia helped Nicole achieve long-term, sustained recovery. After a number of years, she wanted to give back and started volunteering at the centre.  In 2019, she joined the staff.  Now working as an Outreach Coordinator, Nicole helps new women discover Sophia’s life-changing programs.

In Nicole’s words:

“Recovery means I live a substance-free life and I can be the person I was meant to be.  I have many meaningful relationships, a loving home and an amazing partner to share it with. In my role at Sophia now,  I’m so happy to give to others what was so freely given to me.”

Our New Home

With your help, we can ensure all women have a warm, welcoming space to discover wellness.

After a long search for the right property, we’re excited to let our community know that Sophia’s new home will be located at 238 Metcalf Street.

Our new home will feature small meeting rooms for counselling sessions and larger community spaces for group programs like yoga, meditation, art, book clubs and writing workshops. It will have cozy nooks for reading and journaling, a welcoming kitchen for coffee and chats, and a living room that will serve as a home away from home for women who need a peaceful space to focus on their recovery process.

We can’t wait to move in!

Estimated Construction Start Date

November 2023

Estimated Completion Date

Spring 2024

Our Goal

We’re aiming to complete our new home by December 2023 so that Sophia Recovery Centre can be “Home for the Holidays.”

To make that happen, we’re turning to our community to help us raise $1,500,000.

A number of partners and supporters have already stepped forward and helped us raise 75% of our goal.  However, gifts of all sizes are still needed to ensure construction can go forward as planned.

As the walls and roof take shape, we’re building community right into the structure, with a custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling Gratitude Wall in the building’s main entrance.  Inscribed bricks will literally rise to the roof, revealing how our community came together to construct a safe space for women to recover and be well.

Will you buy and inscribe a brick to add your support to this monumental step forward for Sophia Recovery Centre?
