Welcome Hall Mission has been working with men in transition, supporting and encouraging them as they move from homelessness to autonomy, for almost 125 years. On a recent hot summer’s night, we hosted a barbeque for men in our addiction treatment and reinsertion programs. The highlight of the evening was a pick-up ball hockey game that included the men, support staff, and friends of the mission. We were delighted to welcome Anthony Duclair, left winger for the NHL Arizona Coyotes as our special guest. Anthony is not the first Duclair to interact with our men, as his uncle Farell Duclair, a former CFL running back, heads up the team at our Men’s Mission.
The men had a wonderful time! Seeing the happy smiles and raised sticks as men scored and celebrated was heartwarming. More inspiring was the thought that because of the generosity of our donors, many of these men are also celebrating transformation in their lives. The picture says it all.
In this newsletter, we’ll also be sharing Jacques’ story of finding hope and the strength to turn his life around, here at Welcome Hall Mission.
Thank you for your support. We couldn’t be happier to have you as part of our team!
