I'm originally from Surrey, BC. It was very traumatic for me the first time I was homeless. I am only 24 years old, I don't know what kind of work I would like as I've never had a chance to work. I was abused as a child, raised around addiction and never got an education. I have no hope or family support. I don't think I've ever been happy. Pray that I get healing and a chance at knowing family and happiness. If I had unlimited resources I would want to go to school and get an education. I would also want a family and a home.
I have been on the streets for over 3 years and have been raped, robbed, beaten and assaulted numerous times. I am a first nations female and have very little education. I just want a home so I can be safe and not have to constantly have one eye open all the time.

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.
