I'm from Toronto. I was 27 years old the first time I slept out. I was cold and it was scary.
I was an automotive machinist machining.
The hardest part of my life was losing my son, My troubles come from Drugs.
If I had unlimited resources I would open my own machine shop.
I wish I could reconnect with my Son Joseph I think he lives in Toronto.

Gateway Shelter, comprised of 40-beds, is a barrier-free homeless shelter open 365 days a year, for men and women over the age of 19.
Clients who do not qualify for the housing program are still able to access shelter beds through the temporary winter shelter or through Gateway Shelter on a night to night basis. Supervised by staff during rest times, it offers separate women's and men’s sleeping areas with washrooms. Lockable storage and coat racks are available for use. Guests are allowed to leave at any time during the night.
The shelter is attached to the Front Room Resource Centre, where individuals can access showers, laundry facilities, hygiene products, coffee, individualized case planning, community referrals and a diverse array of services. Individuals staying at the Gateway Shelter are offered three meals daily through the Bread4Life Program.
