Street Feet Volunteer Nominated for L’Oreal Women of Worth Award

We’ve nominated longtime volunteer, Kirsten Bourque, RN. For a 2017 L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth Award for her tireless dedication to ourStreet Feet Program!

Individuals who are homeless have a higher incidence of chronic diseases, notably walking and mobility as chronic health issues, and can experience multiple challenges in managing diabetes (which may result in foot/leg complications such as infection or amputation). Wait times for foot care provided by clinics can range between 6-24 months.

At Street Feet, since 2014, Kirsten provides foot care free-of-charge to street-involved individuals and people who live in the Sunshine House neighbourhood. Good luck and fingers crossed!
