Arrabon House

A better end to a tough year

As 2020 comes to an end, those who celebrate Christmas are preparing for a different kind of holiday season. Family gatherings are limited, and a Turkey dinner over Zoom just isn’t the same.

Arrabon House, a charity in Parkdale that runs a youth house for survivors of abuse, trauma and mental health challenges for young people aged 13-24 years, are working hard to make this season a good kind of different for the six youth living at the house.

How you can help

This year, Arrabon House needs some help with holiday gifts for the youth.  We’re pooling funds to purchase six $50 gift cards to the retail store of the youth’s choice for Christmas.  Let’s end this year on a high note for our young neighbours.

More Details: Arrabon House

Arrabon House offers counselling, mentoring, and life skills coaching to young women, including youth who are transitioning, between the ages of 13-24. Their 24-hour residential program is offered to women and those who identify as female between the ages of 13-19 in the Parkdale neighbourhood of Toronto. Many of their residents are survivors of abuse, trauma, and mental health challenges. Through a safe, healing environment, they empower these youth to grow to their full potential and ease their transition into adulthood and independent living.

Arrabon is a Greek word that signifies a promise of new things to come, of hope. Which is exactly what they provide for the hundreds of youth who walk through their doors every year.

When Everything Changed

It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help
