Sam’s Story

Sam’s Story

Hi, I am Sam. I used to live along the Seine and under bridges. I lived outside for over 30 years and that is a long time! Now I live at Morberg House. I remember when I used to come to this house and the Sisters lived here. They used to make soup or a sandwich for me and my friends.

The nuns were really, really good to us. They treated us good. I love living here. Sometimes there too many rules though but I follow them anyway. Well sometimes. Anyway, I am an artist and the best thing is I am able to paint again. I’m a very good artist you know. You will see that.

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!
