Patrick is 45. He lost everything through alcohol. Lost his home, his friends, most of his family, his job, his car and all the material things he once had. He lost all confidence and self-esteem and he isolated himself with alcohol. His depression grew. He was living on the streets when he got picked up by a homeless shelter. The hostel is helping him get back on track. The first thing he did was shower, shave and brush his teeth. The Hygiene Bank supports the shelter with basic toiletries.
