It is the Christmas season again. This time of year creeps up on all of us suddenly. It can be a bittersweet time of the year for our youth. Our youth workers are busy coming up with ways to make this season enjoyable for our youth. The Christmas tree is up and paper snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. It is getting colder outside so the Shelter will be very full and busy the next few months. This can be a hard time of year for many of our young people. Our youth will struggle this year as they always have but there are amazing, caring and creative individuals surrounding them. Two Youth Workers have taken on the task of coming up with a calendar of events for the month of December. Skating, movie night and ugly Christmas sweater making are a few of the many ideas they came up with to keep the youth occupied and involved. Christmas time can be emotional and tough but we do our best to make it fun for the youth.
