Farewell to a Dedicated Leader
June 3rd, 2020

It is with the deepest gratitude that we bid farewell to Simone Penner, Today House Chair.
Homelessness in Steinbach is often referred to as invisible as many of those who struggle are not so obvious. This didn’t stop Simone Penner from recognizing the need in 2011.
Her heart was pulled to create a safe space for the most vulnerable people in our community and in 2012 founded the Today House shelter.
For the past 8 years, Simone has poured herself into leading a tremendous group of board members and staff in providing shelter from the elements for those in greatest need in Steinbach.
Her compassion and dedication, patience, and kindness were far-reaching over her time as chair of Today House and she enhanced many lives along the way.

We wish you all the best in your next adventure Simone, and we thank you for all the years you selflessly dedicated to Today House.
