Thanks to our amazing supporters, Like That has reached almost 75% of its funding goal! We need to fund our program at least through June, so our participants can build and enter a float in the 2015 Pride parade! Help us get there by contributing to our fundraiser, and sharing it with your friends! Click below to visit our FundRazr page, and watch a fantastic video about Like That!

Interested in seeing what our Automotivate crew is up to? You can now follow their progress in the Automotivate Blog! Written by program coordinator JD Ormond, with fantastic photos from Winnipeg photographer Chris Friesen, watch the learning unfold over the coming weeks.
Automotivate is a project that engages homeless and street-involved adults in a social enterprise initiative to restore and sell vehicles. See our Programs page for a synopsis of the program. Thank you to LITE for funding this important initiative!
From 2012-2013, Sunshine House ran the very successful Solvent Users’ Recreation Project (SURP). As part of the Winnipeg Arts Council’s WITH ART Project, filmmaker Jim Agapito filmed the progress of SURP over a period of several months. The resulting documentary is now available to watch online! Thanks to the Winnipeg Arts Council and Jim Agapito for making this possible! Click the video below to watch the first of eight parts. The remaining segments are available on the Winnipeg Arts Council website here:

New schedule, new poster!
We couldn’t limit our new program Like That to just twice a month, so we bumped it up to once a week! The group gathers 6:30-8:30 pm, every Monday at Sunshine House!
