Trevor’s Story

Others, Child Poverty , Stories

Contributed by: Youth Unlimited (Greater Vancouver)


Trevor grew up in Foster Care. Growing up he suffered from mental health and ended up being homeless after aging out. With only a blanket to himself, experiencing homelessness was straining Trever physically and mentally even more. Meeting Calvin from the Youth House in Mission, Trevor’s life began changing. In Calvin, Trevor found a supportive father figure who thought him important life skills and cared for him. Eventually, Trevor was able to get off the streets and find a loving community within Youth Unlimited where he volunteers and shares his experiences with other youth who come from similar backgrounds.
