Dee Hope

Proud to be born to second-generation Bajan parents, Dee is one of the original writers in the Writers Collective of Canada’s first workshops at the Friendship Centre at Dundas and Sherbourne. Dee’s experience in community service spans over twenty years working with marginalized populations in Toronto’s downtown core. She is currently a frontline Community Worker at Sound Times Support Services focusing on clients with mental health and challenges in the justice system.

Dee is also a WCC Workshop Facilitator, single mother, radio host and a programmer with radio regent. The WCC gave her voice, in a community of writers whose support and inclusion empowers all to tell their unique stories and to become a writer: the truest form of freedom.
