St Michael's Homes

Our Story

 

St Michael’s Homes provides a continuum of programs and services within its rehabilitative homes, including seventy-five beds in four residential settings, all located in the City of Toronto.

Currently St Michael’s Homes has twenty employees, delivering counselling and rehabilitative services to its residents. The agency is an important part of the network providing recovery programs in Toronto, and especially for those who are in mid-life and clearly in need, but do not qualify for other programs.

The settings of our homes are an integral part of the programs and are communities in which residents and staff members are mutually supportive, sharing responsibility for creating and maintaining a homelike atmosphere. It is our aim to create and maintain communities of care and acceptance so that, through this therapeutic action, we can assist with the heeling of deeply wounded individuals as they strive for a life beyond their addictions.

Now in our 41st year, St Michael’s Homes continue to strive as an organization for constant improvement of our response to the human needs of those we serve through our programs.

Our vision for St. Michael’s Homes is empowered individuals leading meaningful lives free from addiction.

Mission
