Misty has a message to all those going through homelessness right now. She encourages others to stay strong and "don't let this sh** change you."
As she puts it, "Living on the streets is hard and you end up doing things you never thought you would do. No matter what, be true to who you are." Going on her almost 7th year of being without a home she says with experience, "I'm not homeless cause home is truly where your heart is." She admits she has struggled with addiction and continues to work hard on it all. She just recently got approved for housing assistance and is currently searching for an apartment. She told us "I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be doing this time. I am getting way to old for this."
We all can help unhoused neighbors re-connect to community together. Donations for a specific person or project or even a small recurring donation can help us continue to make these connections and support local Vancouver severe weather shelter projects and outreach.
