About Harvest House Ottawa:

Harvest House Ministries of Ottawa-Carleton (HHM) operates a recovery program for young men, ages 16 to 30, suffering from drug and alcohol abuse. HHM aims to rehabilitate young men who are chemically dependent, to instill in them self-discipline, and to reintegrate them into society by an inner change brought about by faith in Jesus Christ. HHM receives no government funding, and relies on fundraising to fund its operations.

HHM offers a 24-month holistic program that provides residents with professional and peer support 24/7. The recovery program includes  personal development, recovery tasks, bible study, discussion groups and counselling. HHM offers a grade equivalency diploma course, which is intended to prepare residents for the final GED test that will earn them a high school diploma. 30 of the 73 residents who have taken the GED course at Harvest House have received their high school diplomas. HHM also offers a comprehensive, certified anger management program for its clients. HHM’s second stage program provides re-entry homes to accommodate individuals in the later stages of their recovery program. HHM’s primary outreach program, values, influences & peers (VIP) aims to educate students about the dangers of substance abuse. Since 2003, HHM has done 555 VIP presentations to over 20,570 students.
