Bill Finds a Home

Back in 1995, Bill Cook found himself living in Dixon Hall’s Heyworth House shelter with no one to turn to. He had hit rock bottom and was in need of support from our shelter staff.

“After several unsuccessful attempts to find a place on my own, Dixon Hall came to my rescue,” Bill said. “I can’t say enough about Laura, my Housing Worker. She helped me so much!”

Today, Bill has completed the Building Maintenance program at Ability Learning Network and is currently living in our 30 St. Lawrence St. housing unit.

“I’m happy here. The waiting list was long, but it was worth it. The place is clean, private and free from the druggies you find in other parts of the city.”
