This year we are going about things a little bit different. In an effort to help make a difference in our city, and in lieu of a thank you gift to each client after their mortgage completes, we will be donating $50 per mortgage to the Crisis Centre for Northern BC.
The Crisis Centre for Northern BC is a volunteer based non-profit society that has been in operation since 1970. Their phone-line services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Along with being a crisis line they also facilitate workshops and are a major community resource service with over 2000 resource listings on social services, self-help and support groups, health organizations, fraternal service groups, youth groups and activities, emergency services and more.
While taking into consideration which organization we wanted to work with, it was hard to ignore the Crisis Centre. It came to our attention that the North has the highest suicide rates and our Crisis Centre receives the least amount of funding. Both of us have been touched by mental health and wanted to find a way to contribute to a brighter future.
We deeply appreciate our past, current and future clients! It is with each mortgage that change can be made!
