There will be women only evenings, men only evenings, co-ed, and family and youth evenings.
The open house will feature guest speakers; a performance by a Drumming Circle; and special guest Aboriginal Elder Grandma Irene Lindsay will perform a ritual opening and closing ceremony.

For many years survivors of child abuse in Cornwall and the surrounding areas have sought a place of their own to facilitate healing and reconciliation in community, with community and for our entire community. The Adult Community Healing Resource Centre will be a model within our community that focuses primarily on the participant’s needs. We dedicate our service not only to a person’s need for assistance, but also to the soul’s call for help. Our commitment is to individual self-healing for the betterment of individuals and community.
