I am from Winnipeg. I am an Ojibway and Cree man. but lived in a residential school. I have PTSD which you must know that I am.
I never had a Christmas with my girls and one of them wants me to come for Christmas. It makes me feel like I am still a father it's nice.
My biggest struggle is trying to find a place to live. Someplace I could bring my grandson. I want a place to play with him, I want to feel life again. I want off this street.

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.
