Dawn to Dawn made her happy

Dear editor,

Thank you Grant Shilling, worker for Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness.

A MARIACHI GUITAR was awarded to Joan Mathias for being an MVP during the soccer Homeless World Cup in Mexico City.

Dear editor,

Thank you Grant Shilling, worker for Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness.

The past four months have been the most incredible time of my life and I have but one person/organization to thank for my happiness … Dawn to Dawn: Action on Homelessness!

And especially to the one person that taught me how to relive my life, Grant Shilling.

Grant has shown me respect, taught me how to play street soccer, guided me through some really tough times and helped bring out the best of myself.

Grant genuinely cares.

Not only have I travelled to Mexico City to represent Canada playing street soccer, but I am enjoying the luxury of living in my own apartment. I am also working part-time at the Courtenay Legion. Things can’t get any better than this.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you Grant for making my dreams become reality.

I am a very grateful Dawn to Dawn client.

Joan Mathias,

Comox Valley
