Barrier Free Living’s Transitional Housing shelter for formerly homeless people with disabilities has launched a resident newsletter for winter 2017.

Created by the program’s Occupational Therapy department, the staff and the residents contributed to the newsletter which focuses on “overcoming challenges.”

One resident states that “to overcome challenges they must be looked at like obstacles rather than roadblocks.” The newsletter is quarterly.
