2016 is full of hope for Jason

Jason has made some big changes in his life over the past couple of years and says he’s very much looking forward to continuing his journey  in 2016.
Not only has he sought help for his addiction, Jason has also spent a lot of time this past year at The Ottawa Mission’s Stepping Stones Learning Centre. With the support and guidance of our full-time teacher, he has completed 3 out of 8 online courses as he works towards a certificate in Medical Transcription.
What’s more, Jason now has a new place to live! Over the past few months, he has worked closely with our housing support workers to find a safe and affordable place of his own – and the housing workers also helped to find him some donations of furniture!
Most importantly, Jason has gained a sense of confidence and self-worth after many years of struggling. He is so thankful to The Mission – and to everyone who has donated to programs like the Stepping Stones Learning Centre to keep them running – for the tremendous encouragement he has been given, and continues to receive, as he moves forward with hope.
Happy New Year Jason!
