Welcome to the Cridge Centre!
Hi – I’m Doris the Door! There’s that expression – if walls could speak, oh the stories they would tell! Well… I’ve got stories too!
I’ve been a part of The Cridge Centre since the beginning. I welcomed Edward and Mary Cridge during the construction of this building in 1892. I opened to receive the first children and staff who stayed here. I watched our community grow from Fort Victoria to the city we are today. I was here when we transitioned from being an orphanage to being a multi-service organization that serves over 2400 people a year. I’ve seen the brokenhearted limp through our door, and I’ve seen the passion and commitment of people determined to make this world a better place.
You could say that I’ve seen it all!
What a legacy of care in our community! Truly we are restoring hope and building community – every day for 150 years!
I’ve also seen people just like you step through our doors and make a life-changing, life-giving gift. Will you be next?
