“I’ve been proud to work for RMHC Toronto for the past 18 years. It’s so incredible to be a part of an organization supporting families when they need it the most. When I started working at the House on Gerrard Street in 2001, we supported around 200 families a year. We have grown so much since then, and our future continues to excite me because I know there is still a need and that we can do more.”
