From Homeless to Limitless

My name is Chris. I have been homeless fourteen years. I am 47 years old. I have a plan, and I need your help.  Thank you for taking the time.  I'm raising money for my return to housing.  Your help is essential.

My fundraising goal is $35,000.  That amount will provide me with stable housing and a base to operate from as I rebuild my life.

Briefly, the stereotypes.  I am not an addict.  I'm not mentally ill.  I don't typically drink alcohol.  I don't use recreational drugs.  I want to be housed.  I want to work.

I've stayed in shelters.  I've rented a bed.  I've applied for housing.  I went door to door, mowing lawns.  I've worked with the system, and with case workers.  I've appealed to family.  I've stayed with friends.  I’ve been sleeping on the street for many years.

A return to housing starts with funding.  Re-building a life is impossible without resources.  The ground-level reality is there is no way out of homelessness without money.

As of February 27, 2022 I have moved web hosts.  This involves a significant amount of work.  The site will be unavailable for the foreseeable future.   Of course, that needn't preclude your donating.

For a more comprehensive understanding of my homelessness and who I am, visit my blog, Homeless Unlimited . The site features an overview of my experience, some information about my plans, and a cost of living analysis.

At my blog you'll find more about my plans, and my fundraising goals.  I answer the questions people are too polite to ask.  I write about living on the street, my experiences, and what needs to be done about the problem of homelessness in Toronto.


Your help is essential to my success.  Please share this.  Please donate.
