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.

We are so excited to announce…. We won

We are so excited to announce… that we have won the White Knight Painting 10th Annual Charity Paint Giveaway! We want to thank each and every person who nominated us and helped us spread the word.

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!

White Knight Painting Contest

Thanks to all of your support we are the top 3 finalists in the White Knight Painting contest! We are so close to having our office painted and creating a space that will motivate youth to drop by for programming. Our office not only serves a purpose for our staff members but it is a space that we encourage youth to come into to work on and accomplish their goals. It is difficult to give youth a warm welcome with a cold and uninviting office to come into. It is not too late to continue letting White Knight Painting know why they should choose Threshold Housing.

If you would like to see the other two top finalists in the White Knight Painting contest click here.  We do understand how difficult this is going to be for White Knight Painting to choose as the other two finalists are very deserving as well!
