On Sunday, November 17 Umbrella was awarded the Housing Provider of the Year award!
Sharlene and Blake, Housing Manager, were at the event to accept the award.
This is a true honour to be recognized for our housing program, the staff, board and all our residents are grateful for this award.
A huge thank you to the BC Non-Profit Housing Society for selecting Umbrella and hosting this award and the ceremony.
Here is the video they made of Umbrella. Spoiler alert – Lyca stole the show!
