Shane January 28,1989 - March 4, 2018 Shane struggled with addiction for over ten years. He always put his best foot forward trying to overcome his fears and addiction. To his family he was a hero trying to fight the demons of addiction. Shane had a big heart, a bright smile and an infectious laugh. Shane’s love towards his family was a gift held deep within our hearts and soul. To possess this kind of love is a treasure. Shane mattered and I miss him with every breath I take. Love Mom
Street Health is pleased to be part of Twenty/Twenty Arts Weathered photography exhibition. Our thanks to everyone who shared photo memorials of family members and friends who have died from overdose. Your photos are a powerful statement that more must be done to prevent these overdose deaths that are killing an average of 55 Ontarians each week.
Street Health’s Overdose Prevention Site (OPS) is a part of the effort to save lives.
We provide service to those who are experiencing homelessness and stigma in Toronto’s south east region. The Ontario Government eliminated funding for this site in March, 2019. Since that time numerous individuals, family foundation and community groups have been instrumental in maintaining this service. Your donation as part of the Weathered campaign is vital to maintain this site in the coming year.
