Fisher River has been given the opportunity to apply for bed sets again.
As previously done, we will be following the guidelines from True North Aid. Please see their message below:
Please keep your request moderate, with a focus on those in the community who most urgently need it. The minimum request is 10 BEDS. Due to a VERY limited supply, mattresses will be prioritized to those who can demonstrate a robust method used to identify the number of new beds requested. Additionally, beds will be prioritized for communities with references from the band chief/council, management of social programming, or another form of leadership within the community.
Communities that have been provided with mattresses in the past will be considered, however those who have not received mattresses will take priority.
Who can apply:
If you have not received a bed set previously from this program
Over the age 18
Not on Social Assistance
Living in Fisher River
How to apply:
Please leave your name and number for Sharon Monkman at the Jordan’s Principle office (204 645-2282) to call you back
We will apply for 40 bed sets. The following community entities and programs will be working together to determine the final list of applicants if more than 40 shall apply:
