Breakaway Addiction Services
Let's remind our underserved communities that they aren't alone
You don’t need to scroll far to find social posts highlighting minor nuisances caused by our new self isolated world – untouched hair roots, gel nails grown out, and family bickering due to close contact.
Disruption from self isolation is manageable for most, but for those suffering from discrimination who have struggled in the past to find a community where they belong, a shift back to isolation can be traumatic. The Pieces to Pathways Program, offered through Breakaway Addiction Services, is Canada’s only substance use support program for LGBTQ youth ages 16-29. Like most community run programs, they have scaled back their support to members during the coronavirus pandemic.
As an alternative to their drop-in programs, they’re providing members with non-perishable food bags for pick-up. An important gesture to show their members that they may be isolated but they’re not alone.
How you can help
The P2P team is looking for boxes of granola bars, rice, beans and pasta to add to their food bags. Troop will aim to source and fulfill these items from a local shop, Amazon or Instacart depending on availability. All delivery charges and a tip for the shopper will be covered by Troop.
