    This is a short term focused project to provide additional funding for a high demand time of year. We hope to provide assistance at the right time to bring about support for the persons involved in their futures.


    Reduced internet connectivity - causing our phones to lose service.

    To counteract this we have a non internet line installed as well as new equipment being introduced to ensure connectivity.
