Fun Summer Highlights and Upcoming Events

Thank you 
Boston Scientific 
"Hearts for Health" Volunteers!

In 2011 Boston Scientific began a large garden at their Maple Grove location. Today 75 volunteers plant and care for the garden which yields 900 pounds of produce each summer.

From its conception, Haven Housing has received generous weekly donations of produce from this garden. Our residents at St. Anne Place and Ascension Place have loved trying some new vegetables that are donated like purple carrots and cauliflower. 

Michelle Thompson, the G arden Manager explained why she has stayed involved in this program for all 8 years:  "Through Boston Scientific's Maple Grove Hearts for Health Volunteer garden my passion for helping people, gardening, and promoting a healthy lifestyle come together.  Managing the garden is very fulfilling not only as a way to bring my joy of gardening to others at work, but also to the women and families at Haven Housing who benefit from fresh and healthy produce. We know from research studies that a healthy diet that includes fresh produce improves women's lives not only in the short term but in the long term as well.  I and the rest of the Boston Scientific Maple Grove Hearts for Health gardeners are grateful for our partnership with an amazing organization like Haven Housing to make a difference in women's lives."

Thank you so much Michelle and every volunteer that has worked to provide fresh and healthy produce for the families we serve!

Amazing Day at Sephora!

Sephora in Rosedale hosted a day of pampering for the residents of Ascension Place. The staff at Sephora treated our residents like queens as they took part in the "Confidence Classes" that Sephora taught. Sephora also gave them a free gift bag when they left. 

Ascension Place residents are invited back for another free class at the end of the month. Everyone is looking forward to this!

Thank you Sephora for providing such a special treat!
