The Brome Missisquoi Youth Foundation is very fortunate to have the ongoing financial support of organizations and Trusts.
The Contat Trust has continually provided funds to help maintain the three Houses of Hope. With teenage residents , there are always repairs required and the Contat Trust has been a willing partner.
The residents have also benefitted from the Trust’s financial sponsorship of summer activities.
We are truly grateful for their ongoing support.
For the past eight years, the Eric Webster Foundation has been a dedicated sponsor of our Scholarship and Activity Fund.
Residents have benefitted by having school fees, books and uniforms paid for from this donation. In addition, computers and printers were provided to each of the three houses. We are very proud of the residents who have taken advantageof this aid to further their education. We have recently had a graduate in a nursing program who is now fully employed at a hospital in Granby. We are supporting students in culinary school, machine working and CEGEP.
This Fund has allowed the staff to purchase teenage appropriate books for the start of a library in one of the houses.
The Eric Webster Foundation has been a wonderful partner and through their donation many teenagers have an opportunity for a better life.
Special thanks goes to the Norman Raschkowan Foundation‘s donation which is targetted to the Houses of Hopes’s greatest need.
Organizations in the community have offered a helping hand when the need arises. With the recent major flood experienced at one of the houses , The Knowlton Lions Club generously offered funds to help with the reconstruction.
The four Anglican Churches in the Parish of Brome have kept the Foundation on their outreach list and for that we are most appreciative.
The Brome Missisquoi Youth Foundation would like to express our thanks to all our partners. It takes a community to help the youth at risk that we serve and our work could not continue without your aid.
