Service Philosophy

As a consumer-run organization, HOPE is founded by, managed by, and services are delivered by peers who have their own “lived experience” with mental health and/or substance use recovery. We draw on this lived experience as we support and guide others in their personal recovery journeys.

HOPE’s unique model of service delivery focuses on the individual and their personal recovery goals. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process. This approach is collaborative and involves the community, family members, and service providers. Our philosophy in peer support work is that our Member is the expert and we are here to support them in achieving the most fulfilling life possible. and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
