Seventh Angel Care in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. Revelation 10:7, the Seventh Angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever, Revelation 11:15

I have lived and owned in this area for over 40 years and previous to that my grandparents owned my same property. there was no problem with the original Transition house. We are a welcoming neighbourhood with several geared to income housing operations, three seniors residences,a women's shelter, Salvation army outreach center, and three churches, a school, businesses, and residences all within a four block space.
This mix was working well until just over a year ago when Transiton House reopened

Cobourg needs a shelter to address the needs of its homeless population. Transition house is not it. Making it easier for people to continue doing the things that led to their homelessness is not productive and it's disruptive to the community around them. I have friends in the area and they're just trying to live and work and survive just like everybody else but they have to put up with a lot of drug activity and crime in the area. I think transition house is a little out of touch if they thought letting people do whatever they want is the solution when in reality a compromise meeting somewhere in the middle would be more effective. I was a resident over 14 years ago and I was treated like an addict even though I had just been released from jail and I hadn't touched anything in 4 months. instead of accusing me maybe offering support would have been helpful at the time. I was trying really hard not to relapse and constantly being accused of it was pretty disappointing and made me want to use and leave. The solution though isn't to say you can do whatever you want. I was fine with the rules of the house I just wasn't fine with constantly being accused of being high because my pupils were dilated (medical condition) or just because of my situation.
