Henry, current Daybreak Resident 2019

My health is better, I'm happier, it's quiet and I can rest

Patrick, current Daybreak Resident 2019

Q. How long have you lived at Daybreak?

A. About a year and a half

Q. Do you enjoy it?

A. Yes, it's comfortable, good guys, it feels like home.

I've had jobs, money, a house; but I'm here now. You don't need money to make you happy, but it would be nice to be able to afford a chocolate bar now and again.

Peter, current Daybreak Resident 2019

Has been a drug addict for 20 years, living in shelters and on the streets. She's been with Daybreak 6 months.

This is the first time I have felt safe. When I leave the house there are not people trying to sell you drugs. I was sick a couple of months ago and three people in the house asked me if I was ok. This is the first time anyone has ever done that in my life! Daybreak has given me a chance to get clean and gain my strength. I now feel confident about the future, I feel healthier and mentally stronger.
