A “small town kid” from central Manitoba, Laura eventually made her way to Winnipeg after attending Canadian Mennonite University’s Outtatown Program. In Winnipeg, her passion for people and the North End grew as she began an internship with a local transitional housing project. As the years went by, Laura eventually joined the leadership team for the housing project and continued to engage in the community through a number of social justice initiatives. She hopes to head towards a degree in Social Work in the near future.
Laura serves as our Programs Coordinator and is responsible for assisting families to identify life goals and set up an action plan and timetable to fulfill goals; advocates on community member’s behalf; connects families to community resources; and offers practical and supportive workshops to help community members meet goals.
