🌸 Spring: a time for new beginnings 🌼 e-Newsletter



Spring - A time for new beginnings. What better time to take action to bring HOPE!

There is a face behind HOPE - YOUR faceThe problems of poverty and addiction are so BIG, so difficult and so multifaceted that it can feel that there is NO HOPE—but that’s NOT the case! There is a big problem, it is multifaceted—it is difficult to deal with, but—there is HOPE!

Your gift offers the gift of HOPE to every individual we serve.

There is a face behind HOPE!
YOUR face!

In every case:

  • as a donor… YOU offer HOPE,
  • as a volunteer…You offer HOPE,
  • when you tell your neighbour about Streets Alive Mission and it’s programs, YOU offer HOPE!

LET’S DO THIS!

Let’s roll up our sleeves and change this community! The problem is here! Everyone knows about it, so let’s do this! Let’s bring back HOPE! Let’s take back our community! Let’s take back the good things about Lethbridge, the strong things about Lethbridge. Let’s have positive news stories!

You have the power to change our community to do this!

It doesn’t matter what the problems are. The drugs are here! The associated problems are HERE! It doesn’t matter how many people need our help! It doesn’t matter how they got where they are… they’re here!

What matters now is how we meet them where they are and help them. Let’s DO THIS!

YOU are the rocket-fuel to HOPE!

We're Growing!

New Women’s Home

The current Segue Women’s Home has room for only 5 residents. This is extremely limiting as the need is far larger than can be accommodated. The program is caught between moving some along quicker than is best to make room for new residents or not accept new participants. It is also an inefficient use of staffing dollars.

How it will bring HOPE -->The acquisition and renovation of a new south side property will create a 20-bed facility that will accommodate all 3 stages of recovery in a seamless residential environment. It will almost triple the availability for new participants as well as increasing programming and staffing efficiencies.

This type of facility is part of the identified need within the City of Lethbridge’s housing continuum. We are thrilled to announce that the City of Lethbridge has approved a $425 000 grant for Streets Alive Mission to assist with the renovation of this property.

Post-Treatment Recovery

Women in post-treatment recovery move through 3 stages.

Stage 1 is up to a three month period where there is a need for close monitoring of the individual, assistance in developing disciplines to participate in recovery programming, highly structured activities and limited choice options.

Stage 2 is a 3 – 9-month period where the individual requires some monitoring but is given more freedom to make choices, is encouraged to begin to look to the future as to what they want to do with their recovered life.

Stage 3 is a 9 – 36-month period where the individual has either returned to work or school but desire the safe supportive housing environment as they complete the life recovery to independence.

LET'S DO THIS!

So close to reaching our goal!

We’re SO close to reaching our goal!

Making it Happen!

Cindy BeaudryWhen Cindy Beaudry first heard about the plans Streets Alive Mission had for establishing a new transitional women’s home, she knew she wanted to be involved. Cindy and her family have been long time supporters of the Mission, and Cindy has been personally involved with our current Segue Home and the women who pass through its doors.

🕊️{ She knew she wanted to help… and help she did!

At our Sapphire Benefit Dinner, Cindy announced a $1M gift to the new women’s transitional home. This transformational gift has made it possible for Streets Alive Mission to purchase the property for the home, and begin renovating it to better suit the needs of the women who will find hope and healing there.

Part of Cindy’s gift is $400,000 in matching funds! She wanted to encourage others to help, too!

As Cindy said,

“I have watched Streets Alive struggle over the years with setbacks, doing the best they can with what they have. I didn’t want the devil to win this one!”

He didn’t win, Cindy! Not by a long shot, thanks to you!
