“As an organization with proven results in revitalizing communities and reducing the reliance on the justice and health systems, Keys is a charity which assists those who may otherwise rely on social programs in becoming independent, self-sustaining persons, by providing them a home to call their own. This convincing mandate, coupled with the momentum with which the Keys team was striving to achieve it, was one I simply had to be a part of – their energy is contagious.”
