Summer employees reflect on their experiences
It was a blessing learning how to serve those who see life differently than I do, reminding me about what is really important in this world. This program is doing very impactful work to enhance the wellbeing of residents, and I felt honored to
witness it up close. I learned so many new skills, grew in creative problem solving, and built deep friendships along the way.
Chloe Community Coordinator at Wentworth Program in Hamilton
Joining Indwell’s team and learning their vision to provide hope and homes gave me a sense of purpose—waking up every day knowing that I’m making people’s lives better. I’ve learned a great deal about different mechanical systems and maintenance from my work with the Southwest facilities team. Indwell is
not only providing hope and homes for its tenants, but also for its employees. I found hope in all the smiles and welcoming attitudes—from both employees and tenants. I found a home in the sense of belonging. Working for Indwell was a meaningful experience that I will never forget.

Community Coordinator at Blossom Park in Woodstock
Given the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, I was grateful for the opportunity to bring tenants together once again. My experience at Parkdale Landing taught me about resilience and the ability to support one another through difficult times. I hope to incorporate these practices of working in a supportive community into my personal and professional journey.
