A yellow graphic with a white speech bubble that reads "Radio Headspace" Overlaying the white speech bubble is an orange cartoon caricature in the shape of another speech bubble. The caricature has its eyes closed and a large grin.

Radio Headspace

“Join us every weekday morning to take a few moments to step out of the internal chatter and external noise. We’ll pause and reflect to consider what brings us together in this shared human condition and how we can live a life that best reflects our limitless potential.”

Poet in a Cave

“You don’t get a medal when you walk through the wasteland with an open heart. And if you can’t get back to work, but you learn to live with tender tenacity, no one calls you a hero.”

– Carol Krause

Portrait of Lereen standing outside of 54 Wolseley Street, the future home of Stella's Place. Lereen is looking to the right off into the distance with a serious, determined expression on her face. She has two pearl earrings in her ears and long hair hanging over one shoulder, wearing a white shirt with a black coat overtop. Behind her is the building with 54 Wolseley written above her.

I’m basically trying to know what my capacity is, and don’t try to compare myself to what’s happening on social media, and really just check in and stay connected with my body, and know what’s good for me.”

-Lereen Francois, Young Adult Council Member
