Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM) is a charitable organization that supports young men 16 - 24 years of age as they leave homelessness behind to build new lives. WRYM provides a transitional place to live, a supportive functional family atmosphere and a program that includes individual counselling in life skills. WRYM is an effective operation that depends on community support to fulfill its mission – not only funding, but donations of household goods such as cleaning supplies, furnishings and renovation materials.
The Plasman Group is a world leader in the auto components industry with more than 4000 team members and 20 manufacturing sites for tooling, molding, paint applications, chroming and assembly operations of Class “A” plastic exterior trim products. Shauna Hatch, Plasman Group’s Vice President of Human Resources, explains why the company chooses to assist WRYM:
“Plasman Group is happy to again be a partner to the Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM) this year. Our Company’s giving mandate is to support children and youth agencies across the globe in cities where our Plasman Team Members live and work.
“WRYM is changing lives of young men from 16-20 years of age in the city of Windsor by providing supportive, transitional housing to those who are homeless or who are living in an unacceptable environment without appropriate adult support. Their assistance of 50-60 young men in the group home with individual counselling, and teaching basic life skills such as hygiene, food preparation, budgeting, social responsibility and work ethic betters everyone in our community. Our relationship with the residence dates back over five years and we have seen first-hand how our support gives opportunity for education, employment and independent living skills.”
“We work together to end homelessness,” says WRYM President Susan Freeman. “In terms of day-to-day operations, working with our community partners includes some very practical and essential matters such as providing new mattresses. We are very grateful to the Plasman Group and its volunteers for their kindness.”
