Giving Tuesday Waterloo Region

Supportive Housing of Waterloo

http://www.showaterloo.org

SHOW is fundraising to create a support group for families of those who are experiencing mental health/addictions challenges.  This group will help families cope with the challenges of helping someone who is struggling in the community by offering a skilled facilitator to lead a weekly support program.  Participants will be able to address the issues they face, when a family member is street involved, and be able to meet other families who are also experiencing similar problems.  We recognize that those living on the streets are isolated and very vulnerable, but it is often even more difficult for families to admit a sibling, child or parent is engaged in a lifestyle that may create substantial stress.  Funds raised will be used to cover the costs of facilitating this group, and we in turn hope the participants can then become "ambassadors" to work with other families experiencing similar struggles.
