When I was 7, me and my brother were taken out of my mom and dad’s house. I grew up in foster care. I’m glad I had wonderful foster parents and Mackie’s Place. Mackie’s Place contributed to me building social skills, work skills and business skills. They help with resumes, taxes and advice. I’m 20 now and confused where to go in life. I ask myself if I can succeed.
Mackie’s Place makes you strive for more. When you feel like you have nothing, no motivation, or have financial needs, or even though you’re troubled, you are always welcomed. You aren’t judged by how you look or what community you’re from.
Mackie’s Place is good for society because we’re supposed to be the future. So I cook for Mackie’s. I do a lot of jobs here. There might be kids who are homeless or sick or can’t get enough support and it's all free here. I want Surrey to be great and Mackie’s Place wants to make a better place for all. I’m all about that!

WHY DO YOU SUPPORT MACKIE'S PLACE?
BRIAN & JULIE WILLIAMS
Founders, Ashton Service Group
"Bobbie Mackie, Sylvia Shury, and their amazing team at Mackie's Place have not only built a supportive, caring community that acts as an extended family for youth but they have created an environment that encourages young people to 'DREAM BIG' and believe in themselves. The youth at Mackie's Place are provided with an opportunity to learn valuable employment skills that build their self-confidence and are a great stepping stone to employment opportunities. A program like no other that my wife Julie and I at Ashton Service Group are proud to support"
Former Dean of Education, Trinity Western University
"As a former teacher and teacher educator, I am very aware of how difficult and necessary it is to support young people beyond school. I believe Mackie’s Place beautifully bridges the crucial gap between home and school, and brings together educational and social work understandings to do what is most important for vulnerable young people – provide hope! Their emphasis on supporting and equipping young people within a caring, creative, challenging and mentoring context is making a significant difference in the lives of many young people."
