For the last 6 years, a local woman has been spearheading a labour of love. Working with youth aging out of government care, Linda Liss saw too many falling through the cracks. She wants to help young women get their lives back, with a hand up, not a handout. That’s why she started Making Ourselves Matter Services Society (MOMSS), an organization that will soon offer a 4-year program based on an apprenticeship model. For the first 2 years, women aged 19 to 29 will live, work, and study in a rural home, under the guidance of staff and volunteers. They will spend the next 2 years living and working in the community, but with the support of the MOMSS team. A huge number of volunteers has made the project possible. Tradespeople, businesses, students and many more volunteered their time and skills to do a complete renovation of the home. MOMSS is very close to welcoming its first wave of students, but it’s still short on funding. It needs $75,000, and hopes Prince George will come together and support the cause. MOMSS accepts donations online, by mail, and over the phone. Click here for all the details.
