Home Away From Home

Message from Executive Director Patty Mainville:

Rossbrook House Foundation is so appreciative of your continued love and generosity in making a difference for the children and youth who drop in to Rossbrook House.

I’m reaching out to ask you to continue your commitment to Rossbrook House by making a gift today.

Rossbrook House supporters share a deep-rooted belief in the goodness of the place that many young people in the Rossbrook House community call a home away from home. It is a place where you have invested to make a difference in the lives of so many. Together we have infused the Indigenous ways of life through our programming to provide children and youth with a sense of pride and belonging.

Since last year, supporters have helped keep the doors open each day of the year for the 2478 children and youth who walked through them. Making sure there was a place open 24 hours every weekend and throughout the school holidays. Not only have you provided a safe place for many, but you have also participated in a ReconciliAction step towards a better Winnipeg and a better tomorrow.

This may be one of many donations you’ve made to Rossbrook House over the years, or this may be a chance to become more involved after learning about us. In the same way that you help children and youth feel a strong sense of belonging we hope that you too will feel a part of this special home away from home.

Your involvement in our circle of support and Rossbrook House family is deeply appreciated.

All of us at Rossbrook House and the Foundation wish you and your family peace throughout the holiday season.
