“I came to Causeway looking for the job of a lifetime, but instead I got a life to find a job.” – Causeway Client
Causeway is a not-for-profit agency based in Ottawa that helps people with mental illness and other challenges find rewarding work and live more independently. By helping everyone reach their full potential, we are helping establish stronger and more inclusive communities.
We know that everyone is different — that’s why we offer a variety of employment programs, social enterprises, and support services to serve a diverse range of people. Each person can take multiple avenues while on their journey, but they all lead to the same place: meaningful employment.
Your impact through Causeway
Every year, more than 1,200 people with mental health-related barriers to employment use Causeway’s services. Each of our clients is unique: they have their own story, personal barriers, and goals. But they all want the same thing, and that’s for someone to give them a chance.
At Causeway, we believe in everyone’s potential, and invite you to believe with us. Work means so much more than paycheque – it means empowerment and hope. Together, we create working communities where everyone is invaluable.
Your gift to Causeway will help people with mental illness and other challenges find rewarding work through:
- Pre-employment and employment programs
- Social enterprises that employ clients
- Wrap-around supports like the Resource Centre and Wellness Program
