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.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff
at Daybreak for helping make Christmas time a little brighter for me
and the other residents here at Flora House. I honestly had so much
fun at the party and the food and all the wonderful gifts were truly
awesome! A real class act! Not only did I have fun, but I met some new
people and got to know some of the guys in our house a lot better as
well. Christmas is a hard time for me, thank you to all of the great
people at Daybreak for all that you've done to make it better.
Very respectfully yours,
Current Daybreak Resident Christmas 2019
