Moni Loewen from Recreation Opportunities for Children Inc. receives a cheque from The Chrysalis Fund Members Pat Warkentin and Carmel Wiebe.  This grant decision resulted in $6,600 being awarded to ROC Eastman. ROC Eastman is a not-for-profit organization working to support children and youth living in the Eastman Region of Manitoba, to connect to recreation and leisure opportunities. ROC Eastman began in 2009 as one of three pilot projects of Manitoba Family Services and Housing’s Job Connections Program, and has since been serving the needs of children and youth living in the Eastman Region, who experience barriers to participation in recreation.
