HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre Announces:

NEW LOCATION in Partnership with The Inn of Waterloo and Conference Centre

August 24, 2017

HopeSpring Cancer Support Center enters a phase of renewal and transition location in Waterloo, ON.

Kitchener, Ontario – Today, HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre officially announces a relocation to The Inn of Waterloo, 475 King St. N, Waterloo, Ontario effective September 1st, 2017.

The Inn of Waterloo and Conference Centre has provided HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre an affordable and fiscally responsible opportunity to continue the valuable free services for those affected by cancer and their families in the Waterloo/Wellington/Grey-Bruce/Huron areas.

HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre will be located in the northwest corner of The Inn of Waterloo with access from the west parking lot. A grand opening celebration will take place later in the fall.

We have been blessed with this generous and unique offer of sustainability from The Inn of Waterloo. In our time of need, the Inn came forward with available space that would provide a comfortable, safe and secure environment for the free services we offer for our members and their families. For this we are truly blessed. This new location will allow us to further our efforts of sustainability and map out our strong and healthy long term future. With a location easily accessible from both highway and public transit, along with offering complimentary parking and flexible space, this was a significant win for HopeSpring.” – Shuchanna Swaby, Board Chair

“I have known several people who have used the services at HopeSpring over the years. When I heard that HopeSpring was going to close their doors after over 20 years of supporting our community's citizens battling cancer, I knew I had to offer help. With available space at The Inn of Waterloo, a vision of a new home and new future for HopeSpring came alive. Having HopeSpring move their offices and services into the hotel is very exciting. It has been a pleasure working with this great organization so they can continue to operate and help so many people for years to come.” – Sharon Hales, President
