Herrera Granado family key ceremony

New Home, New Beginnings

With the help of the Shelter Canada translators, we virtually traveled to the community of Trinidad Galvez to officially welcome 6 families into their new homes. Although this Key Ceremony day feels different this time around as we could not be celebrating alongside our El Salvadorian friends, we are still tremendously grateful to be connected with these families and be part of affecting this change in their lives.

The Virtual Journey

Being able to participate in this virtual journey reminds us that we don’t need to be physically present to connect with others, to lend a hand and to offer hope.

Building a Safe Home

Each piece of sheet metal, the nails that hold it together, and the concrete pad that holds it up, represents new beginnings for all the families.

Being able to witness all of these virtually but still having the same emotions as if we were there physically, puts things into perspective. All we need is the heart and compassion to be able to make a difference.
