Erin

Maybe the hardest thing for me to help ‘normal’ people understand is how drugs and alcohol take over a person’s life and that it’s not so easy to quit. I get those normal people can have a drink or two and then never pick up a drink for days or weeks. Unfortunately, many people are not ‘normal’ drinkers and booze completely destroy their lives. I was one of those people who could not quit, and so is Erin.

I met Erin in Ottawa, Canada. I have a lot of respect for Erin. She had the courage to be open and honest about her situation and that is a character trait that will help Erin on the path to her recovery.

Erin only spent a few nights on the streets before she found a woman’s home. When she told the story of sleeping on a hospital bathroom floor my heart broke.

We imagine a world where everyone has a place to call home. Until then, we strive to be the most trusted source for homelessness.
