Coming here, the first thing was hope. This space gave me an opportunity to grow, push myself towards a positive path. Living here, you have to come out of your comfort zone to become better. The living space was uncomfortable because of the size however, it made me make a plan for myself and the children. This also made me realize I cannot be on government help for the rest of my life. Armagh assisted me in starting a school program to get myself back on her feet. Armagh gave me the confidence to move forward. Armagh was the only place that was open when every other door was shut. 

​​

Going to a shelter was hope but coming to Armagh was beyond my thoughts. 

The team was me feel the confidence I needed. Especially meeting with Jessica as everything she was able to do to support her, the mother, the sister, and the heart.

 

For someone to believe in me, I was able to look at myself as I was always told that I should not think of myself and only my children matter. I was able to see that in order to take care of my children, I need to take care of myself first. With staff, I was able to see this and understand I can take care of myself.

 

The gifts and items provided to me throughout my time here was amazing and made me feel good to know that I was able to get the credit for providing these things. Everything Armagh was able to provide to me made my life better and less stressful.

Supporting Luso Participants Safely During Times of COVID

Luso Support Centre Peel is grateful for funds raised through C Gaming at RAMA Mississauga Gaming House which has been used towards program supplies and the purchase of PPE consistent with Public health directives, such as masks, gowns, gloves, hand sanitizer, wipes and other necessary items to resume safe in-centre programming.

As a result, both participants and staff benefitted from Luso’s ability to provide enhanced cleaning, hygiene protocols and maintain distancing while still experiencing programs and support in a welcoming, safe environment.

Program interactions, whether in-centre or virtual, have reduced feelings of isolation, depression and restored important social networks and connections during these unusual times.

“I would like to thank each and everyone of you for all that you do for us.  Your love, kindness and generosity are so much appreciated”.  Caregiver of a participant, Dec. 2020

In spite of the pandemic, thanks to community supporters like RAMA Mississauga Gaming House, Luso has continued to support persons with disabilities, by providing access to regularly scheduled programs, a sense of community inclusion and opportunities to celebrate while maintaining physical distancing. 

Thank you, RAMA Mississauga Gaming House, for supporting Luso Participants safely during times of COVID.

Each year, Streetsville Pipes and Drums donates to local Mississauga Charities a portion of funds they raise through Charitable Gaming at Rama Gaming House Mississauga.  In 2020, recognizing that the COVID pandemic left many households with inadequate food supplies, the band members voted to donate, $5,000.00 to The Compass, a local food bank that serves approximately 1000 households in Mississauga.  In 2019, The Compass distributed 486,000 pounds of food through 15,900 visits to the Compass location in Port Credit.  

Although we are unable to make a formal presentation due to the pandemic restrictions, we do hope to formally meet with the Compass staff and clients in the future and wish to thanks Rama Gaming House Mississauga for the opportunity to help those in need in Mississauga.
