We believe that every person has potential and we work with individuals to help empower them to overcome their challenges to reach their full potential.
Our programs include a Food Bank, Social Work Services with Advocating and Referrals, EarlyOn Child & Family Centre, After School and Teen Programs for youth and Community Outreach Services.
During the COVID shutdown, our staff was very dedicated to continue reaching the many youth who participate in our programs. We were not able to offer in person programming so we brought program to them through weekly door drop packages. Our families rely heavily on food assistance as well as literacy and homework support. With your generous funding, we were able to supply food packs, literacy worksheets, crafts and offer online help with home work support for over 300 children and teens. Parents were grateful for the much need food support but also the extra help for the children. It has been a very challenging time for kids to be out of school, not seeing their friends and having to adjust to a new learning environment when many already were already struggling. Parents and children loved being able to have some type of “normalcy” with our weekly packages.
