#MENTALHEALTHWEEK2018

This week is Mental Health week and we have asked our staff members to demonstrate how they ‘practice what they preach’ when it comes to prioritizing their mental health! It is important that we treat our mental health as well as we do our physical health. Which means taking time every day or as often as we can to do something that makes our mental health feel even stronger. Whether it means we take naps, get our hair done, spend time with our family, go on barefoot adventures, or start our day with a fresh cup of coffee! #GetLoud with us and show us how you take care of your mental health! #MentalHealthWeek

“I love starting my day with a fresh cup of coffee!”

SPRING HAS SPRUNG! OUR FRESHLY PAINTED OFFICE

We are so excited to finally post photos of our newly painted office! We are so happy with how the colours turned out and with the work White Knight did. Not only do these colours get us more excited for spring but we have created a positive and welcoming space that youth can feel welcome to enjoy everyday! We want to thank the incredible team at White Knight for choosing us at their charity of choice but for also doing a great job. We truly enjoyed having the White Knight team around! We can’t believe how quickly they were able to transform our office.

Emergency Preparedness

Recently as many of us are aware our region has been shaken up with tsunami warnings and  earthquakes. Here at Threshold we want to be prepared and our dream is to have an emergency kit for each of our houses and enough to cover all the youth in the program. Not only do we see the importance of having our youth prepared but as well as our community. To do this, we are fundraising for the proceeds to cover the costs of the kits for our youth.

We have partnered with Get My Kit for our community members be able to purchase kits for a discounted rate. All you need to do is go to GetMyKit.Ca and use the coupon code: Threshold. And the discount proceeds come to Threshold Housing, which means we will be able to cover the costs of kits for the youth in our program.

All we need to do is sell 80 kits to be able to cover the costs of kits for our program. We urge our community to spread the word, whether it is in person, email, social media, or over telephone. Please let your friends and family know that between today and March 7th they can go onto the website www.Getmykit.ca/shop to get a kit at a discounted rate!
