10 years…can you believe it?

What is 10 years?

post_FB_1200

It’s hundreds of hours of mentoring youth.

It’s thousands of kids and parents (yes, really in the thousands) who have sat in our office, ate in our kitchen, studied at the computers, made art in the art room, gardened in our greenhouse.

It’s 10 years of watching kids stumble their way towards their goals with determination and hope.

It’s dozens of precious partnerships.

It’s hundreds of families who have attended Neighbourhood on the Move.

It’s hundreds of meals cooked. Hundreds of kilos of vegetables grown.

It’s relationships with partners, donors and volunteers without whom we would never have existed.

It is hugs, tears, joy, comfort, challenges, failures, triumphs and growth.

And we are grateful for every minute.
