In 2013, Our Harbour president Catherine Gillbert led a successful money-raising campaign for Our Harbour when she walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain. This July 18th she returned, this time to tackle the 208 km stretch from Le Puy to Conques in France.
She was raising money to support Our Harbour’s efforts to combat isolation among our residents. With the right combination of workshops and programs on life skills, art, exercise and information exchange, they should be that much better prepared to fully integrate into our community.
Catherine’s dozen years of dedicated effort on their behalf, typified by this trek, is her personal campaign to combat the insidious stigma associated with mental illness. Please reward her efforts, and the hard work of all of our volunteers and staff, by making a donation.
