Welcome to the John Howard Society of Peterborough. We have successfully provided programs and services for over 60 years, creating a safer community for all.

We are now offering services in person, via text, phone, email and virtually.

New Beginnings and Changes

We are delighted to announce that our Transitional Residence is now complete and we are accepting applications through the By-Name-List.   This residence is fully secure and is staffed 24/7.

For information contact:  Dana Hetherton, Manager of Justice Services

Healing from Within moves to CCRC

This was a difficult decision as we have provided this service to our community for over 10 years.  However, with shifting priorities we made the decision to move away from clinical work.  CCRC provides professional counselling to both male and female survivors of sexual harm through existing funding streams and is thrilled to be able to expand this work to an increased number of men, men identified individuals and their families.

If you are a current or past HFW client looking for services, please call CCRC and tell them that you were with the JHS.

To arrange for counselling, please contact Emily Buckley 705-743-2272 ext 308.
