Please join The Salvation Army for the 10th Annual Hope in the City Breakfast and learn how your support is making a difference in the lives of people like our guest speaker, Alvin.
Born to a Ukrainian-Hungarian father and an Ojibwe mother, Alvin’s childhood was far from an auspicious one. Neglect, poverty, racism and abuse paved a path toward self-destructive behaviour for him.
As an impressionable child, he was often left home alone overnight or would accompany his mother to the bar where he would be left unsupervised, witnessing drug deals and acts of violence.
In his 12th year, Alvin placed himself in foster care. After foster care, he turned to partying and alcohol as a method of coping to deal with the traumatic events of childhood and being raised in foster care. During a visit to his stepfather who was serving a sentence in Stony Mountain Penitentiary, he was encouraged to contact The Salvation Army about their Midnight Challenge hockey program for youth looking to leave behind negative lifestyles.
This program gave Alvin the tools and contacts required to turn his life around. After overcoming several difficult challenges in life he now, as an adult, has a wife have two wonderful children and he is employed as a consultant for the Province of Manitoba.
Your support of The Salvation Army’s Hope in the City Breakfast provides valuable funds to programs that help make success like Alvin’s possible.
