You can now make a donation to Eli’s Place in memory or in honour of a loved one. We are  pleased to introduce tribute giving with customized e-cards that can be sent to friends and family when a donation is made towards the work we are doing to build the first long-term, rural residential treatment and recovery-based centre for young adults experiencing mental illness in Canada. See the form at the bottom of the page or view it in a separate window here.

Looking for a way to think outside the gift box this Holiday season? Give a gift in honour of a loved one and send them our special Holiday e-card.

There is a tremendous gap in our mental health system for young adults, aged 19 to 35, with serious mental illness.  Eli’s Place will provide a long-term, rural residential treatment and recovery-based program.

We urge you to be a part of this revolution in mental health treatment. The first of its kind in Canada, Eli’s Place will offer individualized therapeutic care and recovery programs, with a graduated transition into the community.  A range of programs will promote recovery and resilience through the acquisition of life and work skills needed to move from survival to living, and from mental illness to hopeful futures.

Thank you for Giving Recovery A Chance with your donation to Eli’s Place.
