BC Housing Education Awards to 13 Burnaby residents

Kelly Sheldon is among 13 Burnaby residents to receive BC Housing Education Awards to help them further their educations and improve their lives.

Sheldon will put her $750 bursary towards her goal of becoming a wellness counsellor through Rhodes Wellness College. As a single mom of two sons, one of whom is severely autistic, she hopes to support others in similar situations.

Anyone in British Columbia living in subsidized housing, or receiving rent subsidies through BC Housing’s Rental Assistance Program, is eligible to apply for the 98 bursaries and awards. The money can be used for tuition or educational expenses such as books or supplies.
