    • Recovery-Oriented Support
    • Life Skills and Relationships
    • Emotional and Spiritual Growth
  • 50+ Life Skills Workshops
  • Childen, Youth and Family Counselling and Workshops

Our work is made possible thanks to our dedicated professional staff and facilitators, plus more than 125 volunteers who participate in virtually all functions of our operations. In addition, over 250 partners (individuals, health and social service agencies, social workers, medical professionals) refer individuals and work with us to provide the necessary support to our clients.

Serenity Renewal for Families is a registered charitable organization founded in 1983. Governed by a volunteer board of directors, we operate on a budget of approximately $250,000 per year. Serenity Renewal relies on the support of generous individuals and organizations to create happier, healthier lives in our community.
