Thanks to the beautiful Links at Montague

On Wednesday, September 10th at Links at Montague women of all golfing levels from brand new to seasoned golfers supported Adsum at a wonderful day of Golf.

Our wonderful sponsors at each Hole and for prizes allowed everyone to have a fabulous day and leave with full bellies, armloads of gifts and a big smile. Almost $12,000 was raised for Adsum at the First Annual Females Fore Females for Adsum.

Thank you to sponsors, participants and volunteers for a wonderful event.

Housing Support Worker Initiative

Positive change for clients - in finding housing, accessing services and feeling empowered - is one of the key findings of an evaluation of the Housing Support Worker initiative. Adsum, along with six other community organizations, is a partner in this work. The initiative was started as a pilot project in 2011 in partnership with the Department of Community Services. The goal was to work directly with people in emergency shelters or potentially at risk of entering the shelter system to help them secure and maintain appropriate housing.

Making a difference; Non-profits make our city a better place to live

"We have the HR side of things, the expenditures, generating revenue. The difference is that instead of generating a profit, we're trying to always arrive at zero - having provided quality service that responds to the needs of the people we're working with." Sheri Lecker; Executive Director

Sniffing Out The Many Great Ways the Community Supports Us

We’re always amazed at the unique ways people support us. We’d thought we’d seen and heard all the most unusual expressions of generosity until we met Brian Barton.

Two years ago we were introduced to Brian Barton, owner of Bed Bug Detectives, a company that specializes in bed bug prevention and control in Atlantic Canada.

Since meeting Adsum, Brian has donated countless hours of volunteer time and services to our organization, with FREE bi-monthly inspections in our locations.
