Futon Found!!

Months ago, before the covid hit "pause" on a son being reunited with his Mother we had connected to provide games, toys, activities, food & treats for a welcome home. A futon was missing from their request and has been found!! We need to have it picked up on July 2nd and delivered to the family - the worker would love to be there to recieve it and connect too!

Tiny Living & So Young

A 17 year old young lady who placement broke down has been couch-surfing at friends' and other homes because she has no family supports. She has been working with an Independent Living worker, who recently secured a TINY but cozy apartment for her. This will be the first time she is living on her own, and would benefit from a few items to help her become settled and organized. She would also greatly benefit from a ladies bike, to explore and become comfortable in her new community without having to walk the entire area. All items would be more than appreciated as she starts a new life in the city (was placed in Steinbach until now). NOTE that because her apt is a bachelor suite, it's very small, so hoping for items that are smaller/narrow, to conserve space. The living area is 8 x 11 feet
TINY and NARROW is the theme!!
**** UPDATE ****
We maybe hijacked alot of Loving on this Girl!!! We love the worker so has been a JOY to set up a "Dorm Style / Tiny New York Style / Ikea hack" style of apartment for her!!
