Service Delivery Model
Home on the Hill is unique as the organization uses a client/family modality in service delivery.
Home on the Hill manages a Housing Unit sponsored by the Region of York. This unit is in the Community Hub in Richmond Hill. Home on the Hill has been approved to receive a housing unit from Richmond Hill Ecumenical Homes.
Our signature program is the Robert Veltheer Lecture Series on Mental Illness. We meet many families and other stakeholders through the educational events sponsored by this series. Families and clients often find out about Home on the Hill services while attending one of our lectures.
Home on the Hill has been the grateful beneficiary of funds from the Town of Richmond Hill, St. Mary’s Anglican Church, St. Matthew’s United Church and the Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church. We receive private donations often from families and members of the General Public.
Home on the Hill held a successful Gala Fundraiser in October of 2017 which had the support of our provincial and federal representatives who came to this event.
