RAVEN’S MOON

RAVEN'S MOON IS ABBOTSFORD, BC BASED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES HOUSING FOR PEOPLE IN NEED. THEY CURRENTLY HOUSE 74 RESIDENTS.


WHAT IS LIFE, IF NOT A CARNIVAL FULL OF W ORRIES, HOPES, EMOTIONS AND MEMORIES. IN LIFE WE SHARE MOMENTS OF LIGHT AND DARK WITH ONE PURPOSE—CONNECTION. WE ACHIEVE OUR GOALS TO MAKE OUR LOVED ONES PROUD AND FEEL REGRET WHEN WE FAIL. IT’S BEEN ONCE SAID THAT THE STRENGTH OF A PERSON COMES FROM PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THEM. THOSE WHO ARE THERE TO GIVE US WHAT WE NEED THE MOST—COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING AND LOVE.

TRUE PASSION COMES OUT OF PURPOSE. SOMETHING THAT MOTIVATES THE PERSON BEYOND THE FINANCIAL COMPENSATION OR STATUS. WHILE SPENDING A DAY WITH RAVEN’S MOON, I REALIZED THAT THEIR MOTIVATION IS SOMETHING VERY RARE. EVERYONE AT RAVEN’S MOON COMES TO THEIR JOB WITH DEEP SENSE OF PURPOSE AND DEDICATION. EVERYONE IN THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED WHAT I CAN ONLY CALL A MOTHERLY LOVE. SOMEONE WHO LOOKS AT THEM AS INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE THEIR OWN STORIES, STRUGGLES AND HAS ONLY COMPASSION. SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS THAT WHAT THEY NEED IS CONNECTION AND SOMEONE WHO BESIDES HELPING THEM IS WILLING TO SHARE A LAUGH, GIVE THEM GUIDANCE AND GIVE THEM THE INSPIRATION IN LIFE.

EVERY PERSON HAS A DIFFERENT STORY. EVERY ONE WITH A DIFFERENT NEED. IT IS THIS UNDERSTANDING THAT MAKES RAVEN'S MOON UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE. EVERYONE WHO IS A PART OF THE PROGRAM IS CARED FOR, RESPECTED AND TREATED WITH UNIQUE APPROACH. PROGRAM THAT HAS NO TIMELINES OR SPECIFIC PROCEDURES. ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BE HONEST ABOUT THEIR STRUGGLES WITHOUT FEARING JUDGMENT. PLACE THAT EVERY PERSON CAN CALL HOME.
