Collaboration is key to excellent service provision.
There are so many exciting collaborations happening at HOPE House, created to benefit community members!
We think you’ll be amazed at the variety and quality of services being provided to us by Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and by volunteers like John and Bonnie. Please join us in celebrating their gifts and talents.
Meet Jackie, our new Nurse Practitioner (above). Jackie will be joining us Mondays from 12 – 1:30pm to perform primary health care on a drop in basis.
Specializing in episodic treatment, community members and their families are welcome to visit Jackie for ailments such as sore throat, injuries, ear infections, that sort of thing.

We are also delighted to welcome John, an experienced and licenced Paralegal who donates his services to HOPE House community members every Monday from 2:30 to 4:30pm, again, on a drop in basis.
