HOW HAVE YOU HELPED STUDENTS IN NEED?

Program Video to Find Out

 

During the video, Anne Marie Duguay (HCDSB Social Worker) shares a story about a student whose family received assistance. This family was on the verge of being evicted close to Christmas, “Once the child’s home life was more stable, she was able to learn. So this child with a mild intellectual delay is now working towards her high school diploma, which has changed her life and her life trajectory incredibly.”

Josey Guerin, HCDSB Principal, also shares during the video, “I think that who we are as a Catholic Community, is we are a people who help others when they are in need.”  “Through the program, we were able to allow those children to belong in the community, and participate in events, and help with their self-esteem.”
