We make a difference – help us continue!
One young man struck up the courage to go to our Clubhouse with his Life Skill worker – he couldn’t look at people directly, his head talk was totally negative and he rarely left his home. He felt scared all the time. Our clubhouse was a big part of his recovery and his triumph over anxiety and fear. He started out with a few hours a week with Two Rivers Catering and worked up to attendance at public events like catering at weddings. Today he is working full time after completing a certificate program at CNC – he is living on his own and drives a car he purchased himself. This process took over 3 years of consistent patient assistance and support but he is now strong and healthy.
Please help us continue this very important work. Our clubhouse burned down in August of 2018 following over 35 years of quiet service to people in Prince George impacted by mental illness. We are now rebuilding and need your help.
The costs of rebuilding are more than insurance can provide due to asbestos abatement, building to code and ensuring full wheelchair accessibility. If you are able to help please consider one of the following:
- Provide a cash donation through our website, by cheque or cash. We will provide a tax deductible receipt for any donation over $20.
- Purchase a tile for $20 and we will place your name or the name of a loved one in the CMHA mural that will welcome people to the new Clubhouse – again tax deductible receipt provided.
- Donate building products – ask us what we need. We can provide a tax deductible receipt for product donations.
- Form a team and fundraise for this project by attending Ride Don’t Hide on June 23, 2019 at CN Centre.
