Kitchenware For A Group Home

Arrabon House kitchen

Arrabon House

A family that dines together... well, they're just a heck of a lot better off.

Whether your meal time looks like a spaghetti tornado just touched down or a well-plated dining experience, numerous studies have shown that just eating together can have a positive impact on health (yes, even for the one cleaning up after the pasta storm!).  Families who enjoy a meal together eat more nutritious foods, communicate better and have higher levels of self-esteem.  Kids and teens, do better in school and are less likely to use cigarettes, drugs and alcohol.

Arrabon House sees these benefits first hand.  As a registered charity and group home to women aged 13-24 in Parkdale, their kitchen is the hub of the home.  It’s the place where residents unplug from devices, learn how to cook together and build lasting connections.  Thanks to a grant from Home Depot, their 30-year old kitchen is getting a much deserved face-lift with new cabinetry, flooring and large appliances.

How you can help

With the kitchen renovation underway, Arrabon House is looking to replace their broken or mismatched kitchenware and add in a few kitchen essentials they’ve been missing.  They want the items the youth use every day to match the feeling of pride that the new kitchen will bring to the home.  And so do we!  You can lend a hand by donating appropriate kitchenware (register a pick up) or by pooling funds to go towards the purchase of new items like a set of pots and pans, cookie sheets, loaf pans and cake pans.

More Details: Arrabon House

Arrabon House offers a 24-hour support residential program, counselling, mentoring, and life skills coaching to young women, including youth who are transitioning, between the ages of 13-24, 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.

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

Is COVID-19 Actually A Good Thing?

COVID-19? A good thing? No. Hell no. But damn there is a seriously bright silver lining here and I hope I’m not the only one squinting. Devastation caused by the coronavirus has reached all corners of the world, but so has a level of compassion that we haven’t seen in decades, if ever.
