Sometimes our support for an individual stretches over a long period of time. We first met Carol almost twenty years ago. Her husband was dying, and the family was destitute. We helped in some small way and have continued to do so in the years following his death. The family has been scarred by the many wounds of First Nations’ people—suicide and drug addiction, sexual abuse and poverty—but Carol herself, assisted by support from St. Stephen’s, has pressed on toward a certificate in counselling so she can provide help for her people. We feel proud to know her.
