... From Frank
This was my first ride and had a great time, thanks to all.
...Thank you for answering our call, so that we can answer theirs.
We recently heard from a caller who was alternating living in her car and staying in a shelter.
She has been homeless since the start of the year and is on a wait list for assisted housing.
The caller was crying when she said that she had been thinking about suicide, life was so bleak and
hopeless for her right then. The counsellor stayed on the line with her for an hour, until she was calmer
and able to think more clearly. With the support of the Distress Centres responder, she was able to
develop a plan for getting through the evening and thinking ahead about some survival strategies and
resources for the next few days. By the time she hung up, the caller shared that she was more hopeful
that she would live to see a better day.
Had a great time on the ride, kudos to all involved, especially the volunteers.
