John Howard Society of Peterborough
JHS house


The John Howard Society of Peterborough has been fostering safety, wellness, & resilience in this community for over 65 years.

Happy New Year 2024!  

If you don’t understand how your behaviours impact yourself, family, neighbours, friends, co-workers and community, how can you change them? All our programs, whether mandated by the justice system, or through voluntary enrollment, offer opportunities to examine oneself, beliefs and attitudes. By providing new information and skills, individuals are better able to problem solve, empathize how others may feel, and think before they act. The focus is on the behaviour, not the person.

Please Consider Donating

The years of instability, lockdowns and isolation has had a grave impact on the mental health and well-being of so many in our community and JHS is one of the first agencies that many reach out to.
