Joining over 500 delegates from across Canada, our Executive Director, Luanne attended the National Housing Congress and Aboriginal Caucus held by the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association in Halifax. Thanks to support provided by AHMA, Luanne has a fully packed couple of days attending workshops, touring housing, networking with collegues from across Canada and sharing the successes and housing challenges we face in Quesnel. Luanne also attended as a representative of AHMA as she is currently volunteers as the Vice-President of AHMA.
Today DQCHS staff, with help from AHMA, were able to restock the shelves of our community store. Thanks to bulk purchase savings from Quesnel's local Save On Foods, our little store provides tenants access to basic groceries. The store makes no profit on the sales so that we can be sure to provide our tenants with the lowest price possible. We especially love it when the kids visit us after school to buy a granola bar treat with their change.
