People sometimes couch-surf at Melvin Henry’s place, just to have somewhere to stay for the night.
What a turn-around.
Henry, 56, remembers when all he needed was a couch for the night. These days he’s settling in nicely to his own cosy little apartment in downtown Chilliwack.
“I needed somewhere I could do my bead work,” Henry explains.
He secured housing through Xolhemet Society’s Homeless Prevention Program a few months ago. The HPP is set up to help people to change their lives, and get off the streets when they’re ready to do so.
