GREEN EARTH DAYCARE - WE HAVE SPACES: As the province of Saskatchewan progresses through the various phases of it's reopening plan, we've been able to open up the number of spots in our daycare's as well. And ... because we know that navigating the 'new normal' with the coronavirus has been financially challenging for some, we've reduced our rates and we've added a cash incentive plan for new enrollments, all to help reduce the cost of care for the family! We'll also be adding some new programming in the near future. If you are in need of childcare, or know someone who is, please contact Heewon at firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST!
1) Our daycare rates are as follows: Infants $870, Toddler $650, Preschool $640, Kindergarten $625, School Age $500. We have subsidized and non subsidized spaces.
2) New enrollments will receive a $100 per month credit, for the first three months of childcare, after 3 months. The families of current enrollments will receive the same credit, with the same conditions, for each new family they refer to the daycare.
2) We will be adding music and taekwondo to our programming in the future months!
Souls Harbour Rescue Mission received $20,000 for emergency food aid in the wake of COVID-19. The Good Food Access Fund Grant is helping Souls Harbour Rescue Mission to safely provide healthy meals to those in need.
Regina, Sask, June 17, 2020 – Souls Harbour Rescue Mission is pleased to announce that is has received a grant for $20,000 from Community Food Centres Canada’s Good Food Access Fund. The grant enables Souls Harbour Rescue Mission to increase the level of care to society's most marginalized population. Funding is provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Local Food Infrastructure Fund, as part of the Food Policy for Canada. The Fund aims to strengthen food systems and facilitate access to safe and nutritious food for at-risk populations.
"Food insecurity was already an urgent problem before the COVID-19 crisis, with 1 in 8 Canadians struggling to put food on the table. In a time of national crisis, it is in our nature as Canadians to do what we can for our most vulnerable neighbors. We are grateful to the Government of Canada for their quick response, as well as the many corporate partners and generous donors who have stepped forward" says Nick Saul, CEO of Community Food Centres Canada. "The Good Food Access Fund aims to make sure that as many people as possible will be able to get the food that they need. And while we must deal with the current circumstances, CFCC remains committed to advancing policy change that addresses the underlying causes of food insecurity and poverty in Canada. We can't forget that structural inequity is at the core of so many of the challenges that Canadians face, a fact which painfully confronts us when an emergency like this occurs."
Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) builds health, belonging and social justice in low income communities through the power of food. We work with 13 Community Food Centres and 183 Good Food Organizations in 175 Communities across Canada. Our Good Food Access Fund was established to provide emergency relief during this time of national crisis to our most vulnerable neighbors. Learn more at cfccanada.ca or follow @aplaceforfood.

EILEEN - graduated from our women’s addiction program almost 2 years ago. Today she continues to remain clean and sober, she’s working and off of social assistance, she attends church, and she continues to pursue her GED. Her future plans still remain the same, to become a youth worker and to return to her reserve and serve the people there. We’re helping her with that, but today we need your help!
She’s moving out on her own and we’re very proud of her! What follows is her list of 15 items that she needs for her new place. If you have any of these things (only these items), new or gently used, that would be greatly appreciated. Please message us directly and we’ll give you instructions on where you can drop them off for her. Thank-you for your kindness and your generosity! She's an amazing lady with an incredible story!
