Christos, 51 years old
He didn't chose to be homeless...
Because of mental health troubles, bipolar disorder being one of them, then problems related to heroin and crack use, I ended up on the street. I was losing myself. Maison du Père threw me a lifeline when I needed it the most.
My path was hard, but I set realistic goals for myself.
I started in the social reintegration program and became involved in Maison du Père’s clothing depot. This allowed me to rediscover my strengths and skills. With the assistance of my social worker and a great deal of willpower and perseverance, I was able to achieve the goals I’d set. Dreaming is good, but, above all, you have to have a good plan. I would like to thank everyone I met here at Maison du Père. Thank you.
