Shalom Counselling Centre would like to welcome Grant Damsgaard as our Fund Development Coordinator

Grant's passion for nonprofit fund development began in 2016 when he joined the team at the Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre. Working collaboratively, the CACPC's first annual family friendly "Touch-A-Truck" event was introduced. His experience continued to grow when he joined the fund development team at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alberta, delivering annual signature events in support of families with a child requiring in-hospital care. Grant now looks forward to cultivating new donors as well as fostering longtime constituents that support the good work Shalom Counselling Centre provides for their clients in Red Deer and Central Alberta. Everyone is deserving of spiritual and emotional peace and Grant is committed to ensure that the funding continues as Shalom Counselling Centre grows to meet the needs of their clients now and in the future.

National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

Since 2013, September 30th has been observed as Orange Shirt Day across the country to honour the healing journey of residential school survivors, and bring awareness to the need for reconciliation. Canadians are encouraged to wear orange shirts to commemorate the Indigenous children who were forcibly taken from their homes and placed in residential schools. The government recently passed legislation making September 30th a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Although Shalom's office will remain open on September 30th to serve our clients, we join in recognizing and commemorating the legacy of residential schools.
