Happy to Be Part of 2015 Across Cultures Fall Carnival at Rossbrook House!

Safe streets and stronger communities are powered by people -- neighbours who take an active interest in their neighbourhoods and with a genuine desire to make life a little brighter for our young people.

The folks at Rossbrook House personify that effort, which is why we are proud to take an active role in supporting their efforts through such events as September 2nd’s Across Cultures Fall Carnival. The annual event brings together friends, colleagues and families around the start of each school year, with the aim of celebrating positive relationships in our community with food, entertainment, activities and music.

No child who does not want to be alone should ever have to be Geraldine McNamara

It is a collaborative effort led by Rossbrook House in partnership with IRCOM (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba), Winnipeg Police Service and the Health Sciences Centre. It’s the people in the neighbourhood who come out each year to support it that put the Carnival over the top with their enthusiasm and participation!

The Winnipeg Police Service has had a long and positive relationship with Rossbrook House, and Service members have served on the board of directors for many years. This annual carnival is just one of the programs and initiatives we proudly work with Rossbrook House in facilitating.

Located at the corner of Ross and Sherbrook, Rossbrook House is a safe place for children and youth living in the inner-city of Winnipeg, to belong, play and learn. It was founded in 1976 by the late Sister Geraldine MacNamara with the guiding principle that “no child who does not want to be alone, should ever have to be”.

Sister Mac would have been the first to say that Rossbrook House was never her dream but rather the dream and creation of the young people she met on the streets near her home in the inner-city of Winnipeg in the early 1970's.

Thanks for allowing to once again be a part of this great event!
