We're Expecting a Baby

Romero House

And this Baby Needs a Ride

Here’s some happy news for all you socially isolated and mentally drained neighbours – the Romero House community is expecting a baby!  A lovely refugee family from Yemen is excited (and a bit anxious!) about welcoming their fourth child in September.  After all, with three daughters aged 10, 11 and 13, it’s been a while since they’ve cared for an infant!

Despite not having any of the baby essentials they need right now, mom and dad are grateful for the overwhelming support they have received from Romero House, our local refugee housing and support agency, and the wider community since arriving in Canada.  It was at Romero House where the family was reunited after a three-year separation.

Now, their household is filled with happy news and energetic daughters who are super excited to welcome a new little person to their family.

How you can help

We’re helping mom and dad prepare for the new baby by pooling funds for a much needed car seat and stroller.  Help us deliver more happy news to this deserving family.

More Details: Romero House

Romero House welcomes refugee claimants with open arms. They offer housing and support services to people who claim refugee status after arriving in Canada. Refugees are welcome to stay in one of their 10 apartments without internal locks, to live as neighbours rather than simply clients. They help the refugees establish themselves in Canada and create community together.

All are welcome in their community regardless of religion, ethnicity, political beliefs, sexual orientation or gender identity. Over the past 25 years, they have built an organization that celebrates difference and offers the support that refugees need.

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.
