I am 57 year old male. I am originally from Kamloops. I had been sleeping outside for the last 6 years. It was tough on the hard ground. I am now retired, but I worked for the same company fr 37.5 years. The things that have contributed the most to my difficulties is people stealing from you, no security. What makes me happy is having a warm place to stay at Gateway. If I had unlimited resources I would help people who need it. I am not really that interested in traveling. It is not necessary for others to pray for me.
