At a press conference held by the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul on Monday, H’art Centre was named as one of several organizations to be invited to pursue the possibility of locating services on-site to the future Providence Village.
“H’art Centre welcomes the opportunity to pursue this possibility,” said Katherine Porter, Executive Director of H’art Centre. “Already, it has been wonderful to see how the Sisters extend a hand of help with equality, respect, and mutuality. I am inspired by their commitment to community building and their understanding of how inclusion can expand what is possible for all of us. I look forward to finding out what the future may hold.”
The Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul are moving forward with plans to transform their property at 1200 Princess Street into a “village” community that includes housing, the Providence Manor long-term care home and a range of other services. Porter encouraged H’art supporters to learn more about the Sister’s vision for the “village”.
“The announcement does not mean there will be any changes for H’art Centre or its participants in the immediate future. It’s an invitation to unwrap the layers of potential,” said Porter.
