2.  The Host Home Program at the Portal Youth Outreach Association has finally been re-formed and launched. While there has been some interest, we are always on the lookout for new host homes! We are looking for many types of host homes: long-term or short-term, singles or couples, family-style or not, even mature student roommates. The only thing the host homes all have in common is that they provide an atmosphere of acceptance, support, and appropriate supervision, a place where the youth (ages 16-19) can feel safe and secure as they transition into adulthood. To become a host home, or for more information as you discern, please contact Susan DeMont, the host home coordinator, at susan@portalyouth.ca. You can also help by spreading this information to anyone you know who might be willing to offer a place in their home!

Honouring Indigenous Art

St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Picton, ON is building relationships with Indigenous people through the celebration of Indigenous art and culture. The church is now home to the largest Indigenous mural on a church in Canada. The congregation received permission by award-winning Metis visual artist and author Christi Belcourt to reproduce her Art Gallery of Ontario commissioned piece, Wisdom of the Universe. A team of Toronto muralists spent one week recreating the 37'x 36' mural on the church's north exterior wall. The entire mural is comprised of dots to represent beadwork, which is a common theme in much of Belcourt's work.
