PCRS | First Call Gala

PCRS at First Call Gala

PCRS had staff representation at the First Call Gala Dinner last week. The annual event raises money for the great work of First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition (of which PCRS is a founding member). This includes the annual Child Poverty Report Card as well as advocacy work on issues such as living wages, access to affordable childcare, and youth aging out of foster care. Trevor Linden was the keynote speaker and was joined on a panel by three courageous and inspiring young women who all had lived through the experience with aging out of care.
