Feeling Good Inside & Out

In fall of 2012, we introduced a new program to 416.  A Feeling Good Inside and Out project that helps the women feel better about themselves by empowering them and helping them build their self-confidence, self-esteem and self-respect.

It started as a spa-afternoon on Thursdays where the women would get their nails done and a little makeup to lift their spirits.  This provided the women with a safe and social setting to engage in conversation with each other while feeling good with a little pampering.

The volunteers who facilitate the spa-afternoons are Melanie and Tia; both university students specializing in Mental Health and Social Work.  With experience in self-esteem workshops they decided to plan and execute a workshop at 416 that focuses on building the women’s confidence and helping the women voice their strengths and accomplishments big or small.

This past November they hosted their very first Self-Esteem workshop as they invited the ladies to talk about their experiences and future goals.  On small paper stars they wrote their goals and courageously posted them on the wall for everyone to see.  “To be happy” wrote one of the women as she carefully placed her star - a touching and yet simple goal.

These deserving women don’t ask for big lavish things, just to be cared for and to be happy.

A special thank you to Melanie and Tia and all our volunteers for their  dedication and commitment in making a difference at 416!

I comment each time I appreciate a article on a website or

if I have something to add to the discussion.

It's a result of the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And on this article Blog. I was excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I do have 2 questions for you if it's okay.

Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments come across like left by brain dead individuals?

:-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to follow you.

Would you make a list every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,

or linkedin profile?
