This is just a short update to let you know we are working hard at moving the process along. We received a small grant from the United Church of Canada which means we will have a small cushion for our family and the the possible ability to take a couple more family members if needed.
We have also received a generous offer from Neil Phillips of a place to store furniture and household items that we are collecting for our families – THANK YOU Neil! We just have to figure out how to pick it up and get it there 🙂 If you have household items or furniture to donate, we would love to hear from you. Duplicates and extras will be shared with the other Committees under the Rosedale Untied Church umbrella that are supporting families.
I am expecting that our application will be submitted by the end of the week. We are setting up a meeting of the Settlement Workers within the next couple of weeks to assign tasks and make some decisions on the best areas of the city to focus our energies.
Thank you to all of you for your support both financially and emotionally – this is a wonderful journey we are all on!
