Ancoura is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization and a registered charity. Our mission at Ancoura is to provide a nurturing and fulfilling environment for adults living with a mental illness, through stable, affordable housing and a supportive community.
Ancoura is an acronym combining parts of words in English, French and Latin. Ancoura is an anchor, which gives stability in stable, long-term housing embraced by a vibrant community of supports. Within this framework, Ancoura is characterized by heart – (coeur in French and cor in latin) denoting caring, warmth, love and friendship; by courage – a belief in the potential for individual growth; and by the encouragement – that we offer to one another within a supportive community.
