House of Hesed (translation of Hesed ~ LOVE)


Our Mission is to provide a home for persons living with HIV/AIDS, sharing mercy, hope, dignity, and peace. Consistent with the Christian perspective of caring for those in need regardless of race, creed, gender, or sexual orientation, we provide a home-like setting promoting the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual quality of life of persons affected by HIV. We seek to provide the type of assistance and support that enables those who can, to return to stable, independent living in the community. House of Hesed is committed to affirming the value of each person who resides with us, and educating our community about HIV/AIDS to help dispel the stigma and fear surrounding those living with HIV, replacing it with a spirit of compassion.


The House of Hesed is a Registered Charitable Organization (83209 8214 RR0001) that relies on individuals, local companies, foundations, and churches for support.

Since 1998, when we first opened our doors, House of Hesed has been home to more than 120 people.


Local History

In 1980, Winnipeg lawyer Richard Adams enlisted the help of Dr. Agnes Bishop and Dr. Norman Goldberg to organize a Ronald McDonald House project for Winnipeg.

"A remarkable and somewhat small group of people worked tirelessly to organize, publicize, fundraise, plan and build our Winnipeg House. It was a group comprised of people from all walks of life who bonded together, not unlike a family. We shared responsibilities, successes and failures: we lent support and affection to those among us who experience the loss of a child. Less than three years was required to raise 50% of our project costs, build the House and open the doors," says Adams.

On May 30, 1984, the Winnipeg Ronald McDonald House opened, just down the street from Children's Hospital, at 566 Bannatyne Avenue. With room for 14 families, Ronald McDonald House is a "home-away-from-home" for rural Manitoban and out-of-province families with a child requiring treatment at a nearby hospital.

In 2010, the Ronald McDonald Family Room was created to extend the Mission of Ronald McDonald House within the walls of HSC Children's Hospital in Winnipeg. The space is a place of respite and comfort for families with children who are patients at HSC Children's Hospital and need to take a break from the hospital environment. At the time of its opening, it was the largest Family Room in the world. There are now 249 Ronald McDonald Family Room programs worldwide.

In 2011 Ronald McDonald House Winnipeg became Ronald McDonald House Manitoba, a name that better reflects the families we serve and helps us reach out to our communities and supporters outside of Winnipeg.

In 2014, Ronald McDonald House Manitoba became known as Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba to reflect the network of Ronald McDonald House Charities organizations around the world.

From its beginnings in Philadelphia, to our House in Winnipeg, to an organization of over 365 RMHC Chapters across the world, RMHC Manitoba is truly dedicated to keeping families together when it's needed most.

So I humbly as that you join me in the endeavour ~ I can't do this without your help ~ feel free pass this along to others and if you wish to contact me personally if you want more info, or to chat about this, please feel free ~ I thank you in advance for your consideration ~  blessings to you and yours ~
 

 So with all this, I bid you adieu ~ Enjoy your day!

Today's sketch can be found at the Hand Stamped Sentiments #374 ~ it's such a fabulous sketch challenge, why don't you play along too!!!  Onto the sketch ...
I received a card order just before we left for the LakeHouse, so I packed what I thought I needed so I could get my order complete by the weekend!!!  
And everything in black & white AND clean and simple please!!!


Most of my items are Stampin Up, although some items are retired, while others are just what I had on hand from what I packed and what I had at the LakeHouse!  I used Tear & Tape on either side of my embossed image and then sprinkled with Glitter!


My second card, also a part of my card order ~ well, this one is a very loose following of the sketch, 
I sure hope that's okay to do so!!!  The Happy Birthday Embossing folder has been in my stash FOREVER, and this is one of those folders that I use all the time ~ an oldie, but a goodie!!!


I hope I have left you with some inspiration ~ I want to thank you for popping in and having a peek ~ Now why don't you head over to your creative corner and have a go at this sketch!!!
