Recently, The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre has changed their policies and are now offering 24 hour service 7 days a week. Today my guest on “For the Record” on Evolution 107-9 is Sam Perovich, a peer support worker who works at the woman’s centre. The centre is a support hub for woman and children, they offer basic necessities, hot meals, and  shelter to over 500 people daily. Sam gives us some insight on shelters and frontline service providers

“We’re all the same, we’re all human. Just like us, they are just people.”
