It was wonderful to see our community partners and supporters out for the official ribbon cutting at Supportive Housing, now to be known as Emily's Place! We are grateful for the continued support of our affordable housing units. Affordable housing is crucial to protect the vulnerable in our community.

The second annual car show and cruise in memory of Reno Da Maren took place on Saturday July 11th. We were blessed with great weather, and over 100 cars were shown! Delicious food, music, door prizes and a 50/50 draw also contributed to the day's success. Almost $1,000 was raised! Michael House thanks the many people involved in running this event, and the dear family of Reno Da Maren for choosing to support our mission.
On May 23, 2015, HomeLife Realty (Guelph) hosted a garage sale in front of their office on Gordon Street. After months of hard work in organizing, planning, and gathering items from their staff, clients, and community members, the event was a great success! It was a fun morning, including games for kids and a BBQ for the whole family. Gerome the Gnome even made an appearance! Michael House was thrilled to receive over $1,600 in donations! We are thrilled to have the support of the caring business partners in our community. Thanks to everyone who shopped or had a hamburger, and a BIG thank you goes to HomeLife Realty!
