Fresh Start Presents: Community Perspectives on Recovery Housing


Friday April 14th 2023 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm

We are excited for our #community to join us again on April 14th for our next Community Perspectives Lunch and Discussion. 

Our speakers for the upcoming Recovery Housing panel are:

Bruce Holstead: Executive Director – Fresh Start Recovery Centre

Robin James: Chief Administrative officer – Lethbridge Housing

Earl Thiessen: Executive Director – Oxford House

Martina Jileckove: Chief Executive Officer – Horizon Housing

Sandra Clarkson: Executive Director – The Drop-In Centre

Jim Moore: Chief Executive Officer – The Dream Centre

Lunch will be provided, and the panel will be held from 12:00 to 1:30 pm at Fresh Start Recovery Centre. (411 41 Ave. N.W.) 

Don’t worry if you cannot make it in person. 

Please reply to this email and let us know and we will have a Teams link we will share closer to the date. 

We want everyone to know that we have been working on expanding our project associated with our #FreshPerspectives Videos.

We will go forth with a quarterly conversation panel called Community #Perspectives. We intend to showcase and discuss issues at the forefront of our sector. We first launched in November with the initial Conversation around Community inclusion during National #Addictions Awareness Week.

You may have also seen some of the videos we have been posting daily, including perspectives from our staff, alumni, and clients. We are looking to include the entire community as each of us has a different perspective but ultimately the same goal. We will engage attendees to share their perspectives after the panel time permitting. We would be delighted to have as many perspectives as possible after the panel. Let us help break down the stigma together and create a larger conversation.

We are grateful to use our space as a safe place to gather and share thoughts and experiences with the community, and we are confident this, like our Fresh Perspectives.

 Community Perspectives will gain momentum and allow us to showcase the many perspectives and strong voices in our community.

We look forward to seeing you all there! 

With Gratitude,
