It is a beautiful morning in Mornelle Court, Toronto. Kids are getting ready to leave for school. Waiting in green vests outside their homes is the Safe Walk Program volunteers, ready to walk them safely to Military Trail Public School. They have been a part of these children's lives from as early as ages 6 to when they turn 13. 

Homeless Connect

HOMELESS CONNECTI attended the Homeless Connect event and was surprised when I first met the Outreach Specialist from the Second Chance program. I had never heard of them until then. Both support workers were very professional and caring and asked what I needed. "I need shoes and some clothing". They let me pick a pair of running shoes and also gave me a coffee mug.

A Shattered dream

A SHATTERED DREAMI am a new student to Canada from Guyana, looking for a place to stay. Was initially staying at the college campus until I ran out of funds. With no job, I looked for friends who helped with accommodation for a short while. Some would ask for favors. Finally, I had to leave but didn't have any place to go. Heard about Second Chance and asked for help.
