Our Heroes – Dec. 2021

Spooky thanks to the wonderful Jen Woltemade and the talented quizmaster Phill Thorne for producing the Halloween Virtual Pub Quiz! Our thanks to everyone who participated and donated – it is community support like this that allows Bruce House to continue delivering our programs.


Look at what the Little Elves sent us! Warm hugs and thanks to Fondation Les P’tits Lutins / The Little Elves Foundation for these great gifts, our clients will feel the love.


Get your turkeys! The great people at Onyx Community Services for donating frozen turkeys, our clients loved receiving these.


We can’t thank Qu’ART – the Ottawa Queer Arts Collective – enough for putting together a powerful evening of storytelling! The stories shared a powerful message of the impact of HIV yesterday and today. Having tellers request that their faces not be shown (in 2021!) was a visceral reminder that HIV stigma is still very much here. Hugs to the storytellers, who shared deeply personal and touching stories of the impact of HIV on their lives. Bruce House fans will have recognized Jay Koornstra, our former ED, among the speakers.
