I am originally from Edmonton, Alberta. The first time I slept out I was 23 and it was winter. I was a Meat Manager at Save-On for 30 years – all over BC. I was also a shake packer, paver, driller and blaster - but I liked meat manager best. I can't work now due to health.
The things that make me happy are seeing my kids (one in Burnaby and one in Calgary) and a roof over my head.
If I had unlimited resources I would buy a fishing boat. I love the water big time. I was a scuba diver.
I pray just to keep on going. One day at a time.

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.
