This Summer issue of the Our Place Newsletter shares my thoughts on how Our Place is exploring a new avenue of transforming lives while still continuing the important work that, with your vital support, we do every day. Plus, I know you'll find inspiration in Miatreya's Story of finding a new beginning after moving from tent city into Choices. And Meet Aura, just one of the incredible people who are saving lives every day in our Overdose Prevention Site, plus fabulous donor stories and so much more.
When you first meet Miatreya, the vision of her working on an organic farm and raising her two sons isn’t difficult to imagine. In fact, she fits the part perfectly.
And, for awhile, that was her life until drugs and addiction took it all away.
Working alongside paramedics and harm reduction workers, Aura is Our Place’s Outreach Liaison to the Overdose Prevention Site - or POD. “The POD is an extension of the Our Place Drop-In,” she says. “So the same supports are needed.”
