Our History

Regeneration Outreach Community started as a “living room for those without a living room,” a safe and caring space for the homeless and vulnerable. Centered around caring relationships, Regeneration sought to meet both the practical and spiritual needs of guests, even if that just meant a cup of coffee and a listening ear.

Regeneration had a number of homes before Grace United Church stepped up and a long-term lease was established. In 2011, the Regeneration offices officially opened.

Since then, Regeneration has seen tremendous growth, adding several new programs and services in order to meet the growing need in our community. What used to be a four-day breakfast program has multiplied into several life-giving programs offered each day, 365 days a year, so that struggling people can build hope for tomorrow.

One comment from a guest encompasses everything Regeneration strives to provide: “Thanks for the place to be.”
