I am originally from North Vancouver BC. When I first slept outside I felt helpless, scared, and alone. The circumstances are foggy because it's been awhile. I was 31 years old.
I've worked for family most of my life as a dispatcher, and it's what I truly enjoy doing. Being a leader, helping others, motivating others.
What contributes most to my problems is how I feel inside about myself. I feel as if I'm not worth it. It is almost as if I know I wont make it.
The hardest part of my life is being alone. Never really having a connection with someone.
Being around my family makes me happy.
I would like help with the things I need most: mental and emotional support and a safe place to live.
I would like people to pray for those who have it worse.

North Shore Housing Centre
North Vancouver, British Columbia

The North Shore Shelter provides 45 year-round minimum-barrier shelter beds and up to 20 overflow sleeping mats available during extreme weather. The need for a shelter on the North Shore, one of the richest communities in Canada, was identified through Lookout's shelter operating in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Canada. Further investigation discovered the North Shore had a sizeable homeless population living in the communities' streets and parks – refusing to leave their neighbourhoods for assistance. As a result of this need, individuals and organizations across the North Shore came together and formed a task force on homelessness with the mandate of creating an adult coed shelter, as well as a youth safe house.
