As 2017 draws to a close, I wanted to take this time to say thank you. This Project is successful due to the people involved, who generously give their time, passion and funds to ensure the great work continues. As we build this community of empowerment, we all keep learning and growing and for that, we are grateful.
When establishing The SHIFT Project, one of our intentions was to encourage the women to build a network for their future. Now, two years in, we can see this emerging. Those women who have completed the program and now live independently in the community often mentor the current residents.
Find out more about this plus lots more that’s happened for The SHIFT Project Byron over the past year.
The Project has continued to grow and develop a stable presence in our local community. We were recently profiled by a national magazine where one of our participants had the opportunity to tell her story and how working with SHIFT has supported her in her successful integration to community. Read about this and lots more in our latest newsletter.
The SHIFT Project goes from strength to strength. In November the Billinudgel Hotel held a fundraising event for us, participants are learning about maintaining a commercial garden plus a new website will be launching in March 2017.
This newsletter highlights current programs the SHIFT ladies are involved in and some of the great successes the women have experienced.
