Family Makes A House A Home Campaign

CAN YOU HELP KIDS STRUGGLING WITH RISING FOOD & HOUSING COSTS?

YES, I’LL HELP ENSURE YOUTH HAVE STABLE HOUSING & ENOUGH FOOD FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

You can help kids and youth get enough to eat this Christmas.

Our goal is to raise $70,000 by December 31st so we can provide the support that all of the kids in our programs need. We can’t do it without you!

GOOD FOOD & A GOOD HOME MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE

When you think about the holiday season, what comes to mind for you?

Family gatherings? Holiday parties? Cozy nights in? Cookie or gift exchanges? One important thing in common for all of these special occasions? Good food.

But this year, we’re hearing from our families, and our young people who are out there for the first time trying to make it on their own, that affording food is harder than ever before.

And it’s true! Food prices in Canada have jumped by 10.3 percent from just one year ago and inflation on food items is now at a 40-year high!

Can you help the kids and youth here at the Village, and the young people in our community outreach program who are struggling to make ends meet, get enough to eat during this unprecedented time?

A gift right now can help combat the tragedy of food insecurity and could mean the difference between an empty or full fridge for these kids.

AN APPEAL FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

The other thing that makes the holidays bright for most people is the love of family and coming together in the warmth of a happy family home.

But most kids who grow up in the care system, and especially youth once they’ve aged out of care, rarely have a happy home to return to. The sad reality is that many youths are couch surfing, just so they can be close to someone they know, and so they don’t feel quite so alone.

But a couch is not a home, it’s the bare minimum, and these kids deserve to have a home for the holidays. Can you make a gift today so our youth workers can help homeless youth find a real home for the holidays?

Your gift can help make independence feel safer for youth by ensuring we can provide new home welcome kits with all the essentials, teach the youth in our programs how to be healthy roommates and help them nurture a good relationship with their landlord. These things are vital to help youth keep and maintain their home.

As part of the extended Village family, you can give kids and youth a chance to feel the warmth, support, and security most of us are fortunate enough to be blessed with — and show them how family makes a house a home.

Please, if you can, make a gift today.
