Waylon’s Story

Waylon’s Story

Well I got a new job working at Morberg House with people that are homeless. The past few days of working there was an amazing experience, I get to help them by having some one on one and talking about their problems, future and helping them make a productive schedule. They have some struggles adapting to a more sober life but by the way it looks a few of them are on the right track. I constantly remind them that they are appreciated and that they can do whatever they put their mind on. Anyways yesterday my wife and I prepared a moose-meat roast for the guys and man did they enjoy it.

For some of them it’s been years since they had moose meat. Hopefully I have an impact on some lives. I remember coming across a quote saying “You may think your light is small but it can make a big difference in other people’s lives” which is true and powerful.

Enjoy your day.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE FOR OUR COMMUNITY:

St. Boniface Street Links / Morberg House have implemented a pandemic response to ensure the safety of our community's most vulnerable. Effective immediately, Morberg House is in semi-lock down with residents being asked to observe Stay-In-Place protocols. Our residents are living in compliance with Health Canada guidelines regarding safe distancing and observing best hygiene practices. Our organization has increased daily outreach to people experiencing homelessness in our community. Though we are unable to welcome volunteers at this time, donations of food, hygiene products and money are gratefully accepted.

Thanks to the generosity of Birchwood Automotive Group, we have a van and outreach staff driving through our community twice a day distributing food, hygiene products and information to those living on our streets. We are collecting information about our homeless population to assist them in finding shelter.

We are in constant contact with people in our sober living community to ensure they have the support they require.

Our psychiatric student nurses and counsellors are available everyday to provide medication and mental health services to our residents.

We continue to interact with our business partners and community partners to respond to events as they occur.

We are very grateful for the support of generous donors who are helping us respond to this public health crisis. If you are able to assist us in our efforts through financial donations or food & hygiene products, please contact us at 204-615-5557 or email at info@stbonifacestreetlinks.com and we will respond immediately.

I encourage you to read the letter linked below. Written by one of our outreach staff members, it truly expresses how we are all feeling at this very difficult time. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and remain in good health! As a community, we shall persevere! Thank you all!
