Everything is looking a little different these days.

We are spending a lot more time at home and realizing just how important having a safe space is. Unfortunately, not everyone has that luxury. We say luxury right now because currently, basic human rights such as housing are not being met for all Edmontonians. 

While we continue to house families and individuals experiencing homelessness, we thought we would take some time to help out our amazing friends, customers, clients and housing workers who are at home and not sure what to do. 

We have compiled a list of all the cool things you can do during these trying times. Here we go:
