I wanted to help the community by keeping it looking good and proving to the neighbours that we care about our community. I like to go and sit in Allen Gardens, so that’s the area I picked to clean. Ecuhome is clean and my support worker is right here. It’s the best place I have ever lived. If it wasn’t for Ecuhome I would be back on the street. – D.S.
