Welcome Inn is looking forward to the grand reopening of our social enterprise in the coming year! We’re excited to announce that, based on community feedback, we will be expanding New Horizons Thrift Store with a new café and community space.
As the new year gets underway, the children in our North End neighbourhood return to school and their regular routine. For dozens of these children, that routine includes the Learning and Fun Afterschool Program!
Our community’s gathering space has been decorated with festive lights and Christmas bows; the children’s gifts have been wrapped and are ready to be shared with those who come to our Learning and Fun Program; and preparations are already well underway for our annual Christmas party!
Steve started off as a customer at New Horizons, but he soon became a volunteer! Steve wanted more social interaction with people. At first, Steve was very shy and didn’t converse much with the other volunteers, but it wasn’t long before he was cracking inside jokes.
