“I’m so happy knowing that my children will be able to achieve their dreams in Canada.” – Jeanny, former WINS client and now employee
Jeanny spent over five years applying for immigration to Canada. Her fierce desire for a better life for her son drove her determination.
When she finally arrived in Calgary, Jeanny worked tirelessly to improve her English and learn new skills. She was connected with an employment program that eventually led her to a volunteer work term with WINS. Through this placement Jeanny’s proficiency, work ethic and sweet personality shone through and after many weeks of hard work she was offered full-time employment with WINS.
Jeanny is thrilled to be working at WINS where she loves being able to help the organization that helped her. With a steady income, Jeanny and her husband felt like they could finally settle down. They had another baby and have planted roots in Calgary with family and friends. When asked about her experience with WINS Jeanny’s eyes fill up with tears of gratitude.
WINS has been helping Calgary women and their families for 25 years. To celebrate and to help keep our programs and services running, we are asking Calgarians to help us reach our goal of 25,000 donations of $25 and 25,000 boxes of gently used clothing and housewares.
