Drew Hermkens and Rina Morris have rebuilt a life together after battling addictions and living on the streets of Winnipeg.

Morris, who was abused at a young age, spent time working the street as a sex trade worker to feed her crack habit.

Hermkens, who called himself Dr. Drew the squeegee guy, regularly worked for a decade at the corner of Maryland Street and Portage Avenue, as well as on Regent Avenue, wiping windows for change.

"When I met them last December during our Harvesting Hope show, they had started to build a new life together," said CBC Information Radio host Marcy Markusa.

"Wait till you hear where they're at now."
