2019 will bring great things to Harvest House.
They’re celebrating a large donation, as well as renovations and an expansion at their shelter..
Founder Cal Maskery says just before Christmas, they received a $106,000 donation from the Moncton Wesleyan Church, “We needed $65, 000 to do our shelter expansion, which we have been preparing for since the spring. We also are doing repairs to our washrooms to improve the condition for our guests.”
Maskery says renovation work is now underway, as they add ten to fourteen more beds to their shelter.
“We have been preparing for this for awhile, we just didn’t have the funds to do it. This restructuring will mean more quality and we can add more lockers and beds to make the shelter more comfortable and safe,” Maskery says
The extra money will be used to help open their new women’s nine month recovery program, “We have been planning that for the last two to three years. We are hoping that by the spring, it will be fully operative as well,” Maskery adds.
