About St. Boniface Street Links

St. Boniface Street Links is so pleased and excited to host this year's Coldest Night Event!


"So, Monday was my clean date. That marks 2 years of sobriety. I don’t think people really understand how bad it was either. 3 years ago I was living on the street, begging for money downtown, I drank everyday and did every drug I could get my hands on, mostly meth. I was constantly in psychosis because of it, running around the city thinking everyone was trying to kill me and I had lost over 70 pounds of body weight. Every single time I would drink, I would end up in either jail or the hospital, the doctors kept telling me I was going to die and all I could think was… what’s taking so long?


These past two years have been so surreal. How did I go from that to being a vegetarian who goes to the gym every day, from being a client at St. Boniface Street Links to becoming staff, a volunteer to the outreach coordinator, and now I’m in university studying sociology and law. - Stephen Hall 2021
