Seeking Ambassadors of Hope

Ontario Shores is preparing to celebrate its 100th anniversary as an organization dedicated to helping people living with mental illness.

This milestone is an opportunity to recognize our past, celebrate recent achievements and share its vision for the future of mental health care by advancing conversations about Ontario Shores and those impacted by mental illness.

To assist us on this journey we are seeking volunteers to serve as Ambassadors of Hope to support activities prior to and following October 23, 2019, the day Ontario Shores officially reaches the century mark.

Ambassadors of Hope will assist in the promotion of events, initiatives, and campaigns associated with the 100 year anniversary of Ontario Shores.

Anyone can be an Ambassador of Hope. Nominations are open to the public.
