United Way Centraide Moncton
We could have not developed Open Sky without core funding from the United Way, and their Community Fund. If you have the opportunity to make United Way charitable donations in your workplace, please do! It has made the difference for us, as well as for many other important community organizations.
As a co-operative, Open Sky has found partnership and encouragement through the Co-operators Insurance CED Fund. Their core funding has enabled the development of much of the farm and vocational programming that Open Sky does.
Government of Canada
Thanks to the Federal Government’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy in 2014, Open Sky was able to renovate our historic building to include a large teaching kitchen, program room and accessible washroom. Thank you!
