We are very grateful that the Richmond Hill United Church has stepped forward to offer Home on the Hill a lease of the Manse which is currently being renovated in preparation for four new tenants and a live in housing support worker. Plans to move forward with this current plan have been put on hold by the COVID-19 virus.

Home on the Hill is grateful for the thorough review of our services in the spring and summer of 2018 by the committed professionals at Endeavour Executive. This volunteer driven non profit organization conducted interviews and an online survey of our clients, caregivers and professionals who are impacted by our services. The information which was gathered will inform our strategic direction moving forward. Thank you so much Endeavour Executive!
Home on the Hill would like to thank our wonderful Community who came together for our First Gala Dinner Dance Fundraiser which was held at the Oakview Terrace on Leslie Street, Richmond Hill on October 28, 2017. Local politicians, dignitaries, and members of the public contributed their good wishes and financial support to Home on the Hill’s mental health programming. We would especially thank Halycon Minds, and renowned instrumental guitarist, Tonino Chiodo, for their incredible music enjoyed throughout the evening and to those wonderful people who donated to our silent auction.
Home on the Hill was delighted that Richmond Hill MPP Reza Moridi was our Honorary Chair. The following thoughtful message reflects his observations about our organization and his good wishes for a successful gala evening:
Home on the Hill was the proud recipient of the Mayor’s Golf Tournament in June of 2015. Our organization received $20,000 from the proceeds of this tournament. We have used this money for the development of our programming to support families who care for those with serious mental illness. This money has also funded our Art Therapy, Cooking and Nutrition, Life Skills, Peer Support, and Fitness Programs which have been developed for our clients. Home on the Hill has gratefully received another grant from the Town of Richmond Hill’s Community and Cultural Grant program to fund supplies for its cooking program. And in 2018, the Grant Program funded the Robert Veltheer Lecture Series on Mental Illness.
We are also the proud recipient of the Councillor Karen Cilevitz’ Skating Party and the Fundraising Drive of the Grade 8 Students of St. James Catholic School, Tottenham. Home on the Hill would like to thank the people of St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Richmond Hill for their endless generosity in providing space for our programming and for their financial support. Also, we are very grateful to St. Matthews United Church and to the Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church for their financial donations and support.
