Building Hope

Michele was a street worker seven years ago.  Now she has a diploma in Child and Youth Work from a community college and is working as the Child and Youth Program Co-coordinator at Winnipeg Inner City Missions.  Michele's three adult children have all returned to school.  If Mom could do it so can they.  We first met Michele in our community outreach program she needed food and clothes which she got.  She also received love and acceptance along with a challenge to get healthy for her kids. Michele first had to conquer her addictions.  Michele was encourage early on to recover her Metis heritage and be proud of that heritage.  The Metis Federation and the Bell Family Fund - The Winnipeg Foundation funded her return to school.  Michele also benefited from our First Steps to Employment Project where she found counselling, support, advocacy, safe housing, and a drug and alcohol free environment in which to grow.
