Anxiety and Depression lurk in each of our worlds and seem to take hold more than most of us care to say. Leave Your Mark Program is for anyone that feels that they just can’t find their footing. We are not therapists, we are not their parents, we are not their bosses, we are a reprieve from all of it. When they come through the gates, we take them on an orientation and they get to gravitate towards something that they like to do. It could be reading with the kittens, petting a goat, walking a horse, mucking out stalls, painting or gardening etc. The point to the program is, after 1 month, they get their named engraved on a tin tack plate, with the year and they get to attach it to a fence post. It signifies that THEY LEFT THEIR MARK. No matter where life takes them, I want them to know that what they did here, MATTERED and they left their mark.
It is also important that We thank 100 Men that Care Penticton, for their donation of the engraving machine. They believed in this program and contributed the funds to support our ever so simple of an idea. We had the willingness and motivation, they provided the monetary to enable us to take this on.
