Lester-Rose Mangubat

2013 Innovation Award - Calgary

Wood’s Homes

Nominator Comments:

“The purpose of the program was to have someone who could go to the home communities of youth, meet their families, experience their lives and make connections. Lester-Rose would go to remote communities, sometimes even in harsh weather and on short notice, to make contacts and re-establish relationships. The work Lester-Rose does helps establish that youth have the resources, connections and support needed to remain in their home communities with their families when they leave a treatment program. The dedication Lester-Rose has provided to this work has enhanced the service delivery of the treatment programs within Wood’s Homes.”
