Veronica’s Story

Because of you, Veronica dreams of working with animals some day.

I want to become a vet technician because I love animals, she says over a pizza dinner at The Madison.

I love their innocence.

Quiet and reserved, Veronica has been through a lot.

Although she is only 30 years old, Veronica had major heart surgery a few years ago.

I was recovering for a long time
I’m just glad I’m healthy now.

After living by herself in a downtown hotel room for a year, Veronica needed to find a place with more supports.

Living in a supportive community for the first time, she is still getting used to her fellow residents.

I am starting to feel like this is home. I take part in the community kitchen where we learn how to bake, she says.

And I recently signed up to go to the beach for a day.

During the week, Veronica is going back to school.

I’m focused on finishing grade nine, and then I will finish high school, she says.

I want that cap and gown.
