Correy’s Story

Because of you, Correy has found hope again.

It wasn’t always that way.

When Correy got out of Headingley Correctional Institution, he needed a place to stay sober and on the straight and narrow.

But as a single man on assistance, he could only afford residential hotels and rooming houses in the inner city where addictions run rampant.

That’s when the former parking ticket commissionaire found The Madison, a place he is now proud to call home.

“This is a wonderful place for so many people,” says the 45-year-old, sitting in his newly renovated room at The Madison.

It instills hope and it gives people hope.
What else do you have in life but hope?

Correy not only found a safe space free of alcohol and drugs, he is also gaining skills as a painter by helping renovate the building. And he’s earning a small paycheck.

“When you work you feel good about yourself. This place is helping me work again, it’s helping me build up my self-esteem again. I haven’t felt this good about myself in years,” he says.
