Homeless but not hopeless

Homeless but not hopeless

I got in trouble with the law and was sent to jail for a year. I ended up in Calgary at Spy Hill. Once I was let out, I didn’t have a place to go and ended up living outdoors in Calgary.

My Struggle With Shame

I have tried to work with my disability, however I have a lot of challenges. I was unable to do anything with my hopeless state of mind and my body. Because of this, I have lived on AISH my entire life. This can be isolating, I don’t have the means to do the things I want or buy things I may need. There’s so much I would like to have or do while I am still alive, but I am unable.
