Helping youth transition in and out of foster care
This family of 4 girls was over the moon excited to get their comfort kits. They loved the LEGO and being able to build stuff together. Foster mom was happy to see that they each got their own teddy bear so there were no fights. Graciela said, “Wait, it’s not Christmas! Why did Santa come?!” It’s heartwarming to know that people who don’t even know these kids want to help.

I wanted to take part in this program because I want to learn skills for when I live by myself. Now that I’ve graduated, I noticed I’m more conscious when it comes to hydro/bills and I’ve also purchased and planned dinners better.
Thank you to our funders!
I liked the positive environment and how everybody was able to communicate with each other.
I learned how to make my current cooking taste better and how to add more flavour. It was also a lot of fun to use the industrial stove. I’m even more motivated to start growing my own food and create new recipes.
