We share the imaginary world of Sesame Street, talking trains and superhero pups with kids before they have a good grasp of the real world. We do this because books cultivate imagination and help expand our view of the world. All kids should get the chance to fly with a pixie or cast spells with a young wizard.
Amy is a new mom to a six-month-old baby. Life can be hard as a new mom, but it’s even harder if you’re 17 years old, living in shared housing and raising a child alone while trying to finish high school. Amy is working hard to become the kind of mom she wants to be, and with the help of the team at the Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program, she’s on the right path.
When it’s 20 degrees below zero and skins cells are exposed, that skin and the rest of my body feels damn cold. I’m likely not alone in feeling this, which makes me think a lot about homeless people in our community as I dust off my winter best.
The temperature is due to drop into the low single digits within the next few weeks. Making it just the right time for Troop to help out the members of Sistering, a multi-service charity, supporting socially isolated women in Toronto who are homeless or precariously housed.

These items will go a long way in helping our participants who are starting over. We will be forever grateful for the support.
Thank you, Troop Members, for contributing to an even more memorable summer for the children in our care.
Four new refugee families were deeply grateful for the backpacks and school supplies that Troopers sent our way as kids started school for the first time in this country.
While our houseguests enjoy your delicious treats and have fun with your toys, their humans are able to attend support and health services knowing their animal companions are happy and safe. Your paw up is much appreciated and helps us keep people & pets together.

Yes, we hit our target to purchase a used cell phone for Amy. Yes, we hit our target to buy the $50 pre-paid Visa card to get her pay-as-you-go phone plan up and running. But more than that, what we did as a Troop team was show a young girl that she’s not alone.
