Who We Are
Eagles Nest knows that things don’t have to stay the same. For more than 15 years we have been working in our community, equipping families with the tools to create a healthier future.
Our faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation of Eagles Nest. We show grace and give unconditional love to others because of Jesus’ love for us.
Our values shape what we do and how we do it:
- Compassion – we embrace others with compassion, without judgement or shame.
- Love – we pursue each action in love, demonstrating dignity and respect.
- Inclusion – we create a safe place, accepting and welcoming all people.
- Integrity – we maintain integrity in our actions, reflecting honesty and trustworthiness.
The vision for the HOPE Centre came from our work operating a transitional home. Eagles Nest knew that the need for support and practical tools was not confined to those who needed housing. There are families who may not need a place to stay, but do need counselling, coaching and educational programs.
Bethel Church donated the use of their former rectory and funds were raised to start a centre that offered these types of supports. In the fall of 2017, the HOPE Centre was opened and today provides practical, accessible services to the entire community. It also contains the main offices of Eagles Nest.
