Minute for Mission - Getting to Know the People We Support. First there was the construction job injury that caused Andrew to lose his job; then he found himself living on the street in Toronto. Luckily, Andrew found the Fred Victor Centre. Their permanent housing became his new home and in their Friends Restaurant Andrew learned cooking and prep work. Soon after, he met a new partner and they began a family. Andrew’s joy was short-lived. He was heartbroken when his partner suffered health problems and their two children were taken into custody. With no income, shared housing, and disappearing hope, Andrew feared he would lose his family.However, with unflagging determination and help from Fred Victor Centre staff, Andrew found a two-bedroom apartment, attended parenting classes, arranged daycare, and presented a positive case for bringing the children home. “I am blessed,” he says, “to have the privilege of bringing up my children. Even in the winter I try to ride my bike whenever I can to save money. I want to provide for them.”Speaking from his job at the Friends Restaurant, Andrew knows that the Fred Victor Centre helped him get back on his feet. “I can give my kids a wonderful future and the opportunities they deserve. I hope sharing my experience can help others.”Our Mission and Service Fund supports the Fred Victor Centre in their vital work. Please give generously.
