Debra Dynes Family House is a non-profit organization serving a large diverse group of multicultural families by providing them a variety of programs and services that are community driven and meet their needs. Debra Dynes serves a large variety of their population through their Food Bank and seasonal services. The Debra Dynes Family House serves many families, children and youth as social housing communities are always rotating families as some leave and more come along. They provide after-school programming for children and youth in the community and offer homework help, computer/internet access and emergency lunches/after-school snacks.
Kavi Mohammed, who is a Program Director at Debra Dynes Family House commented about how Kids Up Front has helped the children and families in their local community;
For children living in our households, going to special events does not normally happen. Between food, school supplies and rent, our families often do not have enough left over for things like concerts, sporting events or shows. Thanks to the generous donations of Kids Up Front and partners, so many of our families have been able to make long lasting memories that would have otherwise not been possible. Seeing someone’s face light up as they receive tickets to their favourite game or concert is a highlight of what we do. We can not thank Kids Up Front enough for the opportunities they have provided and the dreams they have made come true! Thanks so much for all you do!
Debra Dynes Family House supports our program through their various child and youth programs. The high numbers of children and youth remains consistent over time – as a family leaves it is always replaced by another family. Kids Up Front works to ensure these Kids get to experience our City for all it’s worth. With the constant moving, we hope to bring stability and fun into these families daily lives to create lasting memories. We appreciate Debra Dynes Family House for all they do for the community and hope to keep fostering our partnership for the rest of the year and beyond!
