Don't miss your Empty Bowl on Sunday April 19th

Be sure not to miss the Empty Bowl event at Milton Centre for the Arts on Sunday April 19th 11.30am - 2.00pm. Tickets available on the door for $50 which allows you to try the fabulous gourmet soups in your own special hand-painted bowl. But this event is not really about bowls or hot soup although we can enjoy both.

This fifth Empty Bowls in the MinMaxx Hall, Milton Centre for the Arts helps us raise awareness, understanding and actively do something to support those at risk of homelessness in our Milton community.

I look forward to seeing you there. I will be taking video. Please tell me where you are there and why you consider it important to help our residents at risk of homelessness. I will post the videos to this blog.

Thank you to all the restaurants and sponsors.

Annual Empty Bowls event coming up April 19th

It is amazing to think back that the first Empty Bowls event back in 2011 was the first major awareness and fundraising event for what has become Milton Transitional Housing. It is tremendous too that what started as a real vision has become a reality which has demonstrated that it has helped residents in the Milton community.

It is incredible to encourage you to support this 5th Empty Bowls event and show your support for those at risk of homelessness in our community. You can buy tickets to this Empty Bowls and donate here

Sunday, April 19, 2015 from 11:30am until 2:00pm. MinMaxx Hall at the Milton Centre for the Arts, 1010 Main Street East.

Exciting things have been happening at Milton Transitional Housing and we want to tell you about them. The best news we have to give you is that in 2014 we graduated three successful participants who have moved into independent housing!

And one of those participants who has been able to reconstruct her life with MTH’s support expressed her gratitude by saying:
“On behalf of Joey and I, we would like to thank Milton Transitional Housing for the tremendous support and ongoing assistance, in our journey forward. Without your organization, our struggles would have been unbearable.”

$32,000 raised on Milton Cold Night of the Year walk

Courageous residents of Milton braved the weather supporting the 2nd Coldest Night of the Year walk in the town to support those at risk of homelessness. An incredible $32,000 was raised by the teams to support Milton Transitional Housing achieve its aims.

Visit the Milton Transitional Housing Facebook page or website to view images from the walk. You can also search on Twitter using #cnoy2015. It was incredible to witness the fantastic support across 80 communities in Canada from Halifax to Thunder Bay, Winnipeg to Vancouver. You really are making a difference for those at risk of homelessness across Canada. This was one of my favourite pictures.
