Although this year looked like nothing we could have imagined, we cannot help but feel so grateful for all the love and support we have received as an organization from our supporters.
Celebrations will look very different this year, however, we want to celebrate all the amazing things that have happened at Emma House this year with you! Here are some of the highlights.
Healthy Moms & Babies Living in Community
Emma House welcomed 5 new moms and babies in 2020. Despite unprecedented circumstances, Emma House was able to house a total of 7 mothers and their babies providing them with life skills training, basic necessities, and 24/7 care and support. Emma House also had 2 residents graduate from our program. These 2 former residents are now living in community and thriving as new moms.
We cannot express our gratitude enough for our amazing community partners. Without these partnerships, we would not be able to offer the best services for our residents. Some of these partnerships include Alberta Health Services, CDI College, the Government of Alberta, Momentum, and Horizon Housing. We are so grateful.
This year we have received many financial and in-kind donations from our incredible community who believe in the mission of Emma House. We have received gift-cards, cribs, beds, clothes, baby toys, and much more. The generosity of our supporters is over whelming. We cannot thank you enough.
2020 has brought many challenges and lessons. As we wrap up the end of year, we reflect on the ways our community has come together. Thanks to your support, moms and babies experiencing homelessness were able to receive the skills and resources they need. On behalf of the entire Emma House Team, we want to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
