I met Carly in Winnipeg, Canada. Carley has been homeless since she was seventeen. She was using drugs and her parents couldn’t take it anymore. The police came and picked her up, then dropped her off at a Salvation Army homeless shelter.
The good news is Carly now has a year clean and sober. When I asked here what she wanted people to know about homelessness she responded “it’s not a life for young people like me, or people with illnesses. They should have a place to go”!
Carly is spot on. People should have a place to go to call home, and all of us can help make that happen
