I am a veteran and I'm 68 years old. My life is very empty ever since my wife died. She was my everything and my life fell apart after she died and I lost everything and ended up homeless for the first time in my life.A guy offered me a place to stay and then took all my money and locked me out. Then I was attacked and stabbed in the stomach for nothing as like I told them I had nothing worth stealing. I now have a plastic stomach because of this. I just want a safe place to live so I can re connect with my daughter and grandkids. I won't let them see me likme this. My prayer would go out to all the veterans who are homeless and alone like me to get the help they so deserve

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.
