Our programs & services are designed to encourage residents to integrate into the community and connect with a wide range of resources. Residents are held accountable for maintaining a weekly schedule which includes job development; volunteer work, psychological and pastoral counselling. Each resident has the opportunity to explore the Christian faith through Bible studies, prayer meetings, church services, or serving others at a recognized charitable organization.
The ICH Residence is a charming, century stone home located in a settled area. Our home is bright, clean, and organized thanks to the teamwork of our clients and volunteer staff. We have an ideal location only moments away from shopping, bus stops, and affordable food sources. The area boasts the Grand River’s scenic walking trails leading to downtown Cambridge. We are also conveniently located within walking distance from the bus terminal, library, community health and employment resource centers, churches, and corner store.
