Founded by Joseph Craemer in 1939 as a mission mainly for homeless immigrants to the Kitchener-Waterloo area from Eastern Europe, House of Friendship has developed into a comprehensive social service agency that works with people experiencing homelessness, addictions, social isolation and other related challenges. Launched in the fall of 2013, the 2014 Historical CalendarRemember, Reflect, Renew traces the story of House of Friendship over the course of 75 years in 12 themes, reaching from the Legacy of the Founders through the organization’s Christian faith-inspired values to House of Friendship’s many ways of building communities.
