Bri and Colleen: A bird house helps a friendship take flight

A connection between a newcomer to the community and a teenager has helped both during the past year.

“As soon as I met Colleen, we started talking nonstop,” Bri says. “We are here to support … and help Colleen express herself.”

Conversations are the foundation of their friendship that has expanded to include dinners, visiting nearby farms and parks – and building a bird house and a bird feeder.

And opening the door to a new future and possibilities for Colleen.
