Read Their Story And Make A Pledge Today

I am a 65 yr old native residential school survivor. My experience in residential school has caused serious trust issues especially with the government. I still have PTSD symptoms that make it even harder to trust. Because of this I have become my own worst enemy and perhaps struggle way more than I should because I don't ask for help from anyone. Now I an getting way too old and way too sore to be living outside. My arthritus is almost unbearable so the time has come for me to have to humble myself and swallow my pride because I can't do this alone. I have looked for housing but it is impossible to find anything I can afford. Please pray for all the poor people who are living on the streets because they can't find affordable housing. There are way too many and it is getting very dangerous out here. All my relations

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.
