“HOTT staff are kind of like my family” – Colin
Colin moved to Toronto to be near his mother as she battled lung cancer. After her passing Colin fell on hard times, feeling hopeless and depressed. During this time Colin begun to struggle with alcoholism which eventually led him to homelessness. While living in shelters, Colin heard about HOTT and made the decision to apply.
He has now been a resident in three different HOTT properties over the past twenty years, moving from shared housing to his own unit. Colin has also become a Board Member and has served on several different governance committees. Colin is grateful for the support that HOTT has offered him and for role the organization has played in his progress over the years.
