I was born in Calgary, Alberta. the first time I found myself homeless and sleeping out I was frightened. I've worked in construction for a long time.
I have struggled with mental health my whole life. It's really hard to find help especially being homeless and having an addiction to speed. I can't get help because I have no address. I get very frustrated and then yell and then no one wants to help me anymore. I would never hurt anyone, I don't believe in violence but can't help yelling because I am so very frustrated. I just want a place to live and someone to talk to.

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.
