Friends Housing is a registered charitable organization
(#102 163 045 RR001) that has been providing support for adults who suffer from schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder and other related mental illnesses. 

Friends Housing is a one-of-a-kind organization; in that we provide organized programs for our tenants and encourage participation. On a weekly basis, our residents take part in bowling, cooking, and swimming activities, to name but a few. We have found that participation in these activities, accompanied by social-interaction, assists in stabilizing many of the symptoms of mental illness and can help avoid the need for long-term hospitalization.

Each one of us can attest; the obstacles that life brings are more difficult to overcome when we feel that we are alone. The hurdles that face many of those who suffer from a mental illness can at times feel so overwhelming, they appear impossible to overcome. To this end, Friends Housing offers a comfortable, living environment, a sense of community, and a place of belonging.

As with any not-for-profit organization, fundraising is an ongoing concern for Friends Housing. Any financial donation, big or small, by individuals or businesses is always gratefully accepted and we are pleased to issue a charitable receipt for tax purposes. 

Your generous donation helps us continue to provide the numerous activities and programming that enrich the lives of our tenants dealing with mental health issues.

If you would like to make a donation, please contact our Mental Health Director at 204 953-1160.
