In August, 2011, Threshold Housing was pleased to welcome Ms. Sandra Richardson, CEO, Muriel Neale, Community Advisor, Marg Rose, Director of Community Initiatives and Grants from the Victoria Foundation. Together with board and staff members, Ms. Neale and Ms. Richardson toured both Mitchell House and Holly House. We are pleased to announce our “Youth Gap-Funding Proposal” was generously provided by an “Anonymous Donor” through The Victoria Foundation.
Often when a youth arrives at Threshold, they are waiting to secure funding from either a third-party or assistance from the ministry. Youth-Gap Funding helps the youth for 2- 3 months in providing monies for rent and food until their funding sources comes through. Since December 2010 three of our residents have used this funding. Thank You!
