I was born in Boston. I became homeless when the house I resided in and was renovating was seized by the courts and everything I owned, all tools and personal effects, were part of the seizure. I have my British Columbia ticket of qualification. I've worked as a carpenter, plumbing/gas, high pressure welding, 3 year electrical apprentice.
The thing that has contributed most to my difficulties is that my parents were hardcore alcoholics and raised me in poverty. I messed up following bad examples.
I have a physical disability now so my focus is aimed at schooling to become a technical writer. I am good with computers. Each hurdle in this career path is a rewarding challenge.
If I had unlimited funds I would buy and renovate my own permanent home from which I would work as technical writer.
I think perhaps I would like people to pray that my physical state doesn't deteriorate more.

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.
