In December 2020, Umbrella received funding from the City of Victoria to provide meals, wellness checks
and conversations with the unhoused living in Victoria parks.
We partnered with the great folks at the Red Cedar Cafe
to deliver delicious hot breakfasts daily.
Umbrella’s delivery team brought their lived experience (that included substance use,
some mental health and some homelessness)
and their personal stories about their recovery, providing hope and the opportunity for change.
Our team also helped with the transition of people from parks into indoor spaces like
the hotels and arena.
This experience had a very positive impact on our staff that were involved,
increasing their gratitude and community engagement.
We were thankful to have been involved.
