I was born in St John's New Brunswick. I was in my mid 30's and abusing drugs and alcohol when I first became homeless. It was cold and I was nervous and scared. I was a chef for about 20 year and I really liked it. I also sis window cleaning for 20 years. My drinking contributed to a lot of my difficulties and has been the hardest part of my life. I feel happy to be alive and the company of my cats and friends. Having supported housing helps. Please pray for my health.
I have a sister in Victoria, BC who I would like to get in contact with.

The Russell Housing Centre's shelter component is a 24-hour, minimal-barrier facility for up to 15 men aged 19 and older. It is a men-only shelter with homeless women supported by the nearby Elizabeth Fry Society shelter, also located in New Westminster. Donations are a simple way to have direct impact in the life of someone who is homeless.
