Blenz HOpe Centre is now open!
We’re proud to provide meaningful employment to baristas recovering from mental illness at the new Blenz Coffee at HOpe Centre at Lions Gate Hospital.
This Blenz Coffee will do more than serve premium drinks, it’ll be an example of the HOpe Centre’s vision for recovery-oriented practice in action, providing meaningful employment to people recovering their mental health. HOpe Centre Blenz is a social enterprise, which means it has a strong focus on fulfilling a social mission.
The result is great coffee served by wonderful baristas, some of whom will be clients of the VCH Adult Mental Health & Addiction Program. This initiative is a partnership between VCH and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).
