Community Outreach Worker: Final Report
The final report of our Community Outreach Worker, Jen Pearson, who was hired to work at SJE for the summer on a Canada Summer Jobs Grant is now available here.
Our summer program empowered the parish community to connect more meaningfully with persons with disabilities in our neighborhood. In addition to a better understanding of the number of services and organizations working in the neighbourhood, two new initiatives were begun by SJE.
The first is a new cooperative kitchen with residents at Artaban Place.
The second is a new relationship with Indwell, an organization that provides affordable housing in the neighbourhood. In partnership with Indwell, SJE will be involved in a number of projects that will help our neighbours.
Read more about all of this in Jen's excellent report.
Jen is leaving Hamilton in October to begin studies in health policy at the London School of Economics. We wish her every success and offer our thanks for her important ministry in our midst this summer.
