COVID Silver Lining #7: Hazel and Sheila’s stories

Hazel* and Sheila* are both Seniors who never expected to be homeless. The two women met at Lookout Homeless Shelter where they were both guests for a number of months. They ate their meals together and both sought additional help at Hollyburn Senior Services. We provided Hazel with furniture from the Shelter to Home storage room, to complete what she had been able to store for several months. Sheila’s home was entirely outfitted from IKEA’s generous donation.
