Foundation House, operated by Umbrella, we provide a caring home to men who have completed a minimum of 30 days in a stabilization or residential treatment facility. Foundation House is staffed to ensure that residents remain safe, and focused on their individual recovery journeys.
Foundation House can help in many ways. There is no time limit; residents can stay as long as they feel it is beneficial to their recovery. The men can work, volunteer, or go to school, while they follow their individualized recovery programs. We ask all residents to participate in the day-to-day operation of the house. By sharing in cooking, cleaning and other chores, the men gain valuable life skills and learn the value of collaboration. We support each resident with professional one-on-one counselling at the house; this counselling continues to be available after they have moved on.
The only permanent resident at Foundation House is TJ, a rescued sled dog from Thunder Bay, who is living out his life in a home built on second chances.
We welcome alumni of Foundation House to attend the house meeting at 8:00 PM on the last Wednesday of each month. We’d like to stay connected and we know that you can be an inspiration to current residents.
