This was a reality for Rocky and for all too many people on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Luckily, Rocky found First United.
"Before my feet even hit the ground, they opened the doors and said, "Welcome home"," Rocky said.
With nowhere else to turn, Rocky stayed in the shelter for a few months while First United staff helped him connect with the resources and services he needed to get back on his feet. He also had a place for his prized and needed possessions thanks to the 200 unit storage facility.
"Without storage, I would have nothing."
