The support for High River’s Narrow Road Home through 100 per cent of sales proceeds from has staff “overwhelmed with gratitude,” house founder Kimberley Engbrecht said.
As previously reported, Narrow Road Home operates as a place of spiritual healing, acceptance and empowerment for women who require assistance through interventions and life crises.
Engbrecht, who is the executive director, said staff witness lives being touched and help received on a daily basis.
Representatives remain humbled the house was selected as recipient in 2016.
“It’s a long journey and many women do need financial help along the way, who don’t have family or any personal supports in their lives to keep going,” she told the Times.
Joyce Dressler, creator and founder of Salvage Soul Sisters Society, had the inspiration to begin a second hand store from an experience in Mesa, Arizona, and met Engbrecht later that year.
The decision was made to come alongside Narrow Road Home, but she said they needed a place.
It’s a very expensive operation keeping women going and housing them, funding them, and making sure there’s lots of supervision and lots of programming for them,” she told the Times Engbrecht said her vision is the cycle of giving continues and that it’s contagious and further instilled in the clients seeking help at the Narrow Road Home. Dressler further shared her motivation.
