WRYM's August 2018 NetletterRead Now
My time at WRYM
Before I was living at WRYM, I lived with my mother. She was a single mom. My father left a few months after my birth. Me and my mother had our fair share of fights almost everyday, progressively getting worse. She sent me to WRYM to learn how to live on my own and deal with my anger. Now I’m doing extremely well. I worked with the Kid’s Next Door Program, and bought things I needed for a long time to further progress in music! I have also learned to cook things like stir-fry, and chicken. I have learned how to maintain a schedule and a daily routine for personal hygiene, and to do chores like washing dishes, sweeping and mopping floors, and so on. Me and my mother now go to counselling together to work on the way we treat and talk to each other. This was arranged by WRYM.

The WindsorEssex Community Foundation Needs Our Help
As you may recall, the WECF gave WRYM $10,000 last December to assist in the continuance of our Kid Next Door project, from which we believe many of you, as well as our guys, have benefited.
The WindsorEssex Community Foundation wants to hear from YOU! Please take 15 minutes of your time to let them know what you think of the quality of life in Windsor/Essex for their 2018 Vital Signs® survey. Released each October, the Vital Signs® report combines national, provincial, and local data with residents’ views of important issues. The report is used as an educational resource to engage the Windsor/Essex community in ongoing dialogue of what Windsor/Essex is doing well and where assistance is needed most so we can make our community an even better place to live, work, play and grow.
Please click on this link to complete the survey:
Those who complete the survey in full have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win $100! Let them hear your voice!
