The night before she came to the YW Calgary, Beth was sleeping on a mattress on the floor at a friend’s place. She, along with her 15-year-old daughter, had returned to Canada from the U.S. after a sudden divorce, and now they were sharing a tiny room while trying to rebuild their lives.
Beth and her daughter had been at her friend’s for five months. She knew they had overstayed their welcome.
Beth never imagined that she would be homeless – she had owned a house in Saskatchewan before moving to the U.S. But now that she had come back so unexpectedly, there were few people she could turn to for help.
Fortunately, YW had space, and Beth was able to tap into the resources needed to get back on her feet again.
“Everyone here has been so helpful with figuring out my next steps, especially at a time when I couldn’t think straight.”
