BRAVO’s new series Après Ski will star Pittsburgh Native Elise Wims

Make sure you check out Pittsburgh Native Elise Wims “Diva Chef” on BRAVO’s new series Après Ski that airs on Nov 2 10/9c.  Set in the stunning Canadian ski town of Whistler, British Colum, we meet a cast of characters who will do anything to make it in the travel concierge business.  Joey Gibbons, a Canadian hospitality mogul, recently launched his own concierge company and is committed to taking the tourism industry to the next level. He’s recruited a team to help him achieve this goal — and they’re up for any challenge guests throw at them, whether it involves backcountry heli-skiing and steamy hot spa treatments to fine dining in a ski gondola. Of course not everyone sees eye-to-eye.

If you recall, Soul Pitt featured Elise on our Summer 2012 cover of Soul Pitt Quarterly.  Congrats to the Diva Chef from Soul Pitt!

Success Stories from the Ward Home

By Bonita Lee Penn

Jamee-Alaeylah Dany’le Garth-Flemister is a senior at Propel Andrew Street High School in Munhall. She is also involved in the Ward Home’s Supervised Independent Living Program (S.I.L.).  The S.I.L. program is a 24-hour supervised community-based residential program which serves teens (16-21) in apartment style housing.  The residential program assists teens who are in transition from the social services system to adult life.

The Ward Home was established in 1905 as a safe haven for children. The S.I.L. program includes emphasis on the development of life skills, fiscal responsibility, home economic skills, workforce development, interpersonal skills, social and cultural awareness along with higher education initiatives.

About four years ago the Ward Home networked with local artists/centers to establish enrichment workshops. These workshops offer the opportunity for the teens to relax and explore their creative side. “This is our way to connect deeper with the teens to help them discover a passion, a hobby, some have even discovered a career path,” Daryl Lucke, Ward Homes’ Executive Director, commented.   Click Here for Full Details
