This monthly recap is starting with some reflections from our Team Lead, Ricky, who works on our Housing First Furniture Bank team.
Ricky's reflections on the month are as follows:
This month feels like it has passed by so quickly. With all of you, we were able to push through and furnish:
with 139 Adults and 41 Children.
"Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much"
What we all do here, plays such an important role for someone who is need. It allows a person to have something they don't have AND should!
- place to eat!
- place to store their belongings!
- place to relax and rest!
and most of all
- a safe and warm place they can call their own...
So let's go February! Woohoo!
Bring it on March. We're ready for ya!
Thanks for this reflection, Ricky! We are ready for you, March!
We are so proud of our Housing First Furniture Bank team and the work that they do along side the rest of our team. They are an integral part of our team and work so hard to make sure our Housing First participants are getting exactly what they need and want.
February went by quickly as he said, but it was a month full of community support with Raising The Roof, The Coldest Night of the Year and the YEG Rise menstrual product drive. We are so honored to be part of these community initiatives and thank our amazing supporters for helping us support our community members in so many different ways.
March is a very big month for us as we will be celebrating ten years of operation of Find and we are just so proud to hit this milestone with the support of our Edmonton community.
Keep your eye out on our social media for how we are safely celebrating this year!
THANK YOU, Edmonton! We cannot do this without you!
Now, let's get back to ending homelessness!
