Operation Come Home

Since 1971, Operation Come Home has been working with street-involved youth in Ottawa and across the country to help them reach their highest potential.

Comments from our Community Partner:

Operation Come Home has been fortunate enough to partner with iSisters to provide a computer course to the female youth in our Roger’s Achievement Centre and the Job Action Centre. This course has given them the opportunity to upgrade their computer knowledge, but also offers them a sense of accomplishment. The instructor, Tim has worked effortlessly with the ladies by patiently guiding them through a variety of programs and has successfully managed to instill a sense of accountability and perseverance during the 4 weeks. I’ve always received extremely positive feedback from the ladies who have been fortunate enough to partake in the workshop.
