We couldn't be more excited and pleased by the phenomenal turn out at our BCO Launch! Team BCO would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support our launch and offer their communities a hand up! It gave us an opportunity to share our vision of transitional housing and awareness initiatives, as well as the charity drives we have done and continue to do throughout Alberta. With your help we raised $1822 in one night!
