SUSTAINABLE FUNDING AND GROWTH
Our vision is to create sustainable funding for the growth and ongoing ministries of Riverwood House and ReAct by operating a thrift store dependent on volunteer participation.
SERVING THE COMMUNITY
The thrift store will serve the Winnipeg community with humility and respect, and with a desire to share God’s grace with those we work with and those who come through our doors.
DEDICATED SUPPORT TEAM
The board members of Prairie Crocus Thrift Shop are passionate about supporting those whose lives have been troubled by the effects of addiction, trauma and/or spiritual brokenness. Current board members include Kim Swanson, Bruno Deleau, Tony Paré and Candy Anaka-Paré.
Visit the following websites to find out more about the programs Prairie Crocus was established to support.
Our mission is to offer a safe, loving and respectful environment, and a program that addresses the biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of healing for people who suffer from addiction, trauma, and/or spiritual brokenness that they may experience a measure of freedom from the effects of these while becoming better equipped to face future challenges.
Riverwood House will be a 40-unit Recovery Housing complex taking aim at addictions, poverty, and homelessness through a safe, stable and supportive environment for Winnipeg’s at-risk population. Participants will work towards recovery within a context of independent living and supportive programming to build meaningful life skills, including access to ReAct, a trauma-informed recovery program. Riverwood House participants will be empowered to determine their plan to successful recovery on a client-centred timeline and will experience a sense of community and belonging within the context of a supportive service delivery network.
