Why Donate to Portage?

“Our children are not a charity, they are the future of this country, whether they have drug problems or not. Support for Portage helps us protect our country’s future by investing in these children.”

- Michael Howlett

“I’ve seen first hand what addiction does, but I've also seen first hand the gifts recovery brings. Portage has given me freedom and power, a type of power that comes from knowing your worth. We all have a bag and we all carry it differently. Some of us travel light, and some of us are secret hoarders. Portage has taught me how to carry that bag, how to unpack it, how to face the chaos and how to get rid of the clutter. Recovery is certainly not easy, it never will be, but it is worth it.”

- Grace, Portage

“Portage really opened my eyes and helped me become a better person”


- Vince, 20, Portage Ontario Alumni
