I am 64 years old and homeless for the first time. I have COPD and only have 30% lung capacity so I am on oxygen therapy and have a scooter because I can't walk more than 5 - 10 feet without collapsing. I am very grateful to be in a wonderful shelterr but housing is a very challenging ordeal for me. For one there are no places left that will take you to appointments because of cut backs so I have to go by myself and get scared that I will faint or have an episode and need help. I also hate taking a shelter bed when there are so many woman and children still living on the street please pray for them. Thank you

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.
