Bridging the Gap - Host Homes

I received details today about Bridging the Gap, a safe place community program for youth 16-24 in Halton. Stays are either short 2-5 days or long term up to 16 weeks. Bridging the Gap are on the ongoing search for host home providers. They can be contacted on 1-877-425-8661 or 905-635-0663. Bridging the Gap workers support both the host home provider and the youth. They screen and place youth in host homes. There are responsibilities and expectations for both the host home provider and the youth. Host home providers receive some financial support.

Garage Sale August 29th Milton

St Paul's United Church is holding a extensive garage sale to raise money for Mission & Outreach. The garage sale is at the church on Main Street East on Saturday August 29th. Donations are welcome and people can purchase a table too for $25 I beleive. Minimum value is $2. I have been away on avaction for three weeks and so this blog has been quite. I will check about to see whether we have made any progress on a soup kitchen for late 2009 or moved the town council in granting a zoning change to allow an Out-of-the-cold shelter.
