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).

BC Ambulance Service will be having the grand opening of the new ambulance station at the HOpe Centre on March 16th. I’m looking for a quote for coffee & tea for approximately 300 people. If you need any more information please email me or call me at 604-660-6962. Thank you.

Hi, we were wondering if you have a customer loyalty program with the cards and every 10th coffee free. This is something that we really appreciate in other community based coffee shops. Thanks,
