Chek news meets an Our Place resident who’s passion for painting has transformed his life.

Three years ago, Glen Frazier was living on the streets, struggling to keep his life from falling into the abyss of addiction. “I lost my family, got divorced, lost my kids and wife, that’s when I fell into addiction. So I lost my focus,” says Frazier. Having hit rock bottom, he turned to Our Place Society, where he found a new lease on life, and rediscovered his passion for painting.
