Lucia’s Story

“At my lowest point in life I was evicted from my apartment and lost everything I owned. I didn’t have anyone to help me. I was completely on my own, with no family. I was lost and completely unable to take care of myself when Regeneration took me in.”

“Since then, so much has changed. They invited me to come have a meal and visit, and maybe learn about some of their services. So I went. I immediately felt safe. It was the best thing that could have happened to me. I’ve received the priceless benefits of becoming part of a healthy community.”

“My goal is to simply live day by day, and continue to be served and to serve. My eyes have been opened to the suffering that so many people experience, but also to the love that many people want to give! And I want to give back, for all that has been given to me.”

Lucia, better known as Seika on the streets, has a sad and wonderful story that while powerful is just one example of many people who are helped by the numerous agencies, food banks and soup kitchens in Peel.
