I am 39 years old and I am originally from Oshawa Ontario. The circumstances that led to me being homeless the first time were that I got kicked out due to an argument with my step-mother. The types of work I have done include rebar, drywall, landscaping and factory work. I enjoyed doing rebar the most, I would like to be doing it still for a permanent job. I think there is more than 1 thing that has contributed to making things hard for me. Being around family is what makes me the happiest.
