Conscious Kindness Day
On May 16th, 2018, United Way Central Alberta celebrated its first annual Conscious Kindness day. The day was proclaimed in several communities across Canada served by United Way.
To celebrate, we asked individuals to commit conscious acts of kindness to show how much they love the community they live.
Long Road to Healing
From the time I left home at 18, I have made
numerous attem pt s to heal and leave my past in the past. I did fin d ways to adapt, none of them healthy.
I was referred to ACAA because of depression and unresolved grief. My ability to function in life was unraveling, and I had given up hope of ever being able to escape from my past.
