• 2019-2020: We did it with you by our side

    As Renascent celebrates 50 years of leadership in addiction treatment, we are excited to share our 2019-2020 Annual Report with you. 

    Last year, we handled more than 25,000 phone calls with people looking for support, and, through your generosity, the barrier of cost was removed for 529 people across our Inpatient Treatment program and our Essential Family Care Programs. Together, we have covered the gap between government funding and the real cost of treatment. 

    We have supported eight Complete Care Bursaries funded through the This Can’t Wait Fund, creating additional funding treatment capacity above and beyond government-funded treatment. Thank you! 

    We have also invested in important upgrades to our houses, to create the comfortable, healing spaces we know our clients rely on in early recovery. 

    Thanks to the generous support of RBC’s Youth Impact Fund, Renascent has been able to support transitional aged youth through specialized treatment bursary programs for Continuing Care. 

    As you’ll see in the report, we have shared stories from just some of the 50,000 people we have helped since 1970. It has been thanks to an incredible village of staff, board members, volunteers, donors, community partners, and supporters that Renascent has been able to reach this milestone. We look forward to the next 50, with you!
