Ending Homelessness


~Supporting the needs of individuals living in homelessness through collaboration with the community and its support systems~


In the heart of downtown Fort McMurray you can find the Centre of Hope, Fort McMurray’s only daytime drop in centre for our communities homeless and near homeless adults. We are a Christian community based agency which opened our doors in 2005 with a vision of: “Addressing homelessness; by encouraging change; through love, kindness and acceptance.” Our goal at the Centre of Hope is to support those who are experiencing homelessness and those who are at risk of homelessness, toward self-sufficiency. We support and stand behind our municipality by actively working towards ending homelessness in our community.


Our Vision:  

“Fort McMurray is an engaged, caring community working together and making a positive difference in the lives of individuals living in homelessness”
