Thank You for a Successful Open House

On Tuesday, September 26 Cameray Child and Family Services opened its doors to their community partners and funders for an Open House to celebrate Cameray’s 45th birthday! We also were celebrating our 25th anniversary at our location on Imperial Street in Burnaby, and the grand opening of our new expanded space at that location!

We had a great turnout. Guests enjoyed guided tours of the program space, an opportunity to place their handprint on our Cameray Tree and to make a “mindfulness jar” (an example of a therapeutic craft often done in counselling sessions), an abundance of food, and some great doorprizes.

Guests of note were Raj Chouhan, MLA for Burnaby-Edmonds, and Bernard Richard, the Representative for Children and Youth in BC.

The event culminated in a ribbon cutting to mark the grand opening of our newly expanded space. Ribbon cutters included (as pictured from left to right) : Bernard Richard, BC Representative for Children and Youth; Jennie Ireland, Director of Operations, MCFD Burnaby; Tracey Rusnak, Executive Director; Raj Chouhan, MLA; and Don Macdonald, President of the Board of Directors.

In honor of World Refugee Day on June 20, 2017

In honor of World Refugee Day on June 20, 2017, we’d like to share an art piece created from a 16 year old female’s passion for learning more about the experience of a refugee.

Below are the words of this artist explaining what inspired this beautiful piece of work:

“The refugee crisis is the story of our time. How we are dealing with it is defining who we are.  I can’t not deal with it in my work.  To create is to be curious, engaged, awake, and in earnest dialogue with the unknown.  And truly, it is through dance that I have the best hope of honoring a subject I care so deeply about” –Crystal Pite
