Dear Community Members, Peers, Volunteers and Community Partners.

I hope this letter finds you well and healthy.

We would like to share with you, some of our most recent staff updates:

PWA bids farewell to:

1. Rajesh Pisharody who has served as Income & Community Liaison (ICL) for over 15 years. We want to express our gratitude for all the hard work and dedication Rajesh has provided to each member of our community.

2. Angela Stultz who has served as Strategic Programs Manager for over a year serving our community through our Anti-Indigenous Racism & Anti-Black Racism work and providing support to our community with the implementation of the Legal Clinic at PWA among other important programs.

Angela & Rajesh, we are thankful for everything, and we wish you all the very best in all your new endeavors.

Bill Handley & Kyle Vose are both presently on long-term leave from PWA where they have both worked relentlessly. Bill and Kyle, we send you both positive doses of healing and strength.

Jordan Schwartz: is joining us as an Interim Income & Community Liaison (ICL) to bring support to our other ICLs Errol and Shaz.

Somdatt Ramessar, will assume responsibilities as Service Access Manager. Somdatt will still have oversight of the Essentials Market but has put in place a Peer-based model for the Essentials Market’s operations.

A huge thank you to Angela & Rajesh for all your contributions to the PWA Family, we appreciate all of your hard work and love.

Bill & Kyle, you have our hearts and prayers. Take good care of yourselves.

Congratulations to Jordan who started his journey with PWA as a student and is now transitioning to the Interim ICL position and to Somdatt who has been impacting our community since his first day as Food Programs Coordinator.
