There were two new warming / activity rooms completed with this latest renovation. One room with a TV set and benches and the other room is for crafts. This is just so incredible to see happen... This brings us now to four rooms in the six sections that have heat, and some form of activity centre... The Hope that this is bringing these men is beyond belief... One of the great things is that Larissa and her friends are able to bring supplies and lend support, but a lot of the work the men in the home have had the opportunity to take part in . It has been such a boost to them, it has given them an opportunity to accomplish something... something real and something that they can be proud of.... When we first started these renovations, I felt like I was to tell them that we would make sure that there was at least one warming room in each section, but facing such a desperate situation with so many needs, I was overwhelmed and did not have the faith to step out and make that promise....Now with only two more rooms to go, I am getting a little bolder.... I am almost there.... who knows, maybe someone will come along side me on this one and make that declaration for me.....
