I am 56 years old and I am originally from Vancouver. I have never had to sleep outside thanks to John Howard Society. The types of work I have done include manufacturing, cooking and sales. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties are my health (arthritis), hip replacement and mobility. What makes me happy is being busy, that I am alive and that I have support from John Howard Society. To name a few there is Barb Levesque and Steve Soglo. If I had unlimited resources I would travel and help others in need. I would like others to pray for my health.
