#MEETTHETEAMMONDAY

It’s #MeetTheTeamMonday! We asked Sarah some questions to get to know her.
⭐️
Do you lean more towards being an introvert or an extrovert? I am very much a social introvert. I love being around people and I spend lots of time being social but I do find it draining and if I don’t give myself some solid solo time I LOSE MY MIND!!
⭐️
If you were a crayon, what colour would you be? Metallic Gold- obvi!
⭐️
What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee? Meghan Markle
⭐️
Where do you feel the most grounded, near the ocean or in the mountains? That is a hard one—- I think I love the ocean more but the mountains make me feel more grounded. The ocean makes me feel wild and free which I love, but it can be intense and not so grounding sometimes!! Lakes on the other hand are my happy place where I am most grounded for sure.
⭐️
If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be? This is so hard! I am going to go with lion because they are very community oriented, they like to spend most of their time hanging out, spending quality time, lazing around, but when they need to be they are so strong, have great endurance and are fierce. lol
⭐️
What 3 words describe you best? Chill, open, curious
⭐️
Do you prefer coffee or tea? Coffee, coffee, coffee

Shine a Light on Youth Homelessness

Happy November! Starting today until December 31st, Threshold Housing Society is Shining a Light on Youth Homelessness.

In our region, there are more than 150 youth experiencing homelessness, with countless more couch surfing or living in unsafe housing situations. We believe that every youth deserves a safe home. We hope to spread awareness of the youth homelessness crisis occurring in our community and to raise funds so that we can continue to provide safe housing, support services, and community to at-risk youth.

Finding a Safe Home With Pride

Youth experience homelessness for many reasons, one of the most common reasons is family violence and conflict, where youth flee their homes to protect themselves. The 2018 Point in Time Count found that conflict with a parent/guardian was the top reason for housing loss among youth. Through July 1st to September 30th, 2019, Threshold Housing is highlighting the detrimental impact violence and abuse in the home can have on youth, especially on their ability to build healthy habits, continue their education, and have a positive self-image. Studies show that there is an overrepresentation of LGBTQ2S+ youth in those fleeing from violence and abuse in the home and experiencing homelessness. At Threshold, this is the narrative we find to be true among youth we serve, which is why we are dedicating this campaign to celebrate the LGBTQ2S+ youth in our community. 💙💚💛🧡❤️🌈🏳️‍🌈 #FindingASafeHomeWithPride
