I am both honoured and humbled to be given the job of Program Director for TAP. Sharon Walkom has left an indelible footprint in this community. Her compassion and vision have served to help so many, in her gracious and unassuming manner, leaving a hole to fill that seems unfillable. However, I have felt the call to continue on with her passion and to further carry on and develop the mandate of TAP. That is, to help anyone in our community through that ‘rough patch’ that we all endure at some time in our lives. TAP’s mandate is to assist, not to sustain, through the generosity of our friends and neighbours. It is my desire to be a small part of this assistance.
