Fighting for the needs of evacuees

Submitted by My Young

When the Fort McMurray disaster happened and the evacuees had no one to turn to, my colleague Hayley responded.

She worked tirelessly day and night with the evacuees who were staying at the Lister Centre. She is still assisting the few evacuees that are left in Edmonton to this day. 

She fought for them and advocated for their needs.
— My Young, on evacuation efforts of colleague Hayley

Hayley is a phenomenal social worker and a fierce advocate and this truly showed during these evacuation. She assisted evacuees from all walks of life, most who were newcomers and many who were living in extreme poverty.

She fought against all odds and fought when there was little available.
