Transforming Lives Through #HomesnotStreets At Christmas
Our Christmas Campaign is in full swing – thank you so much to all of you who have already sent us a donation, and your messages of hope table cards for our residents. Your support will make a huge difference to those that we help, and who could otherwise be on the streets #HomesnotStreets.
Will your help we are can continue to help people like Liz. She says;
“The best thing about being in the home was the sense of company and never feeling alone - there was always someone there to talk to and lift you up when you felt down.”
Liz was 18 when she moved into our Young People’s home in Salisbury. She had been supported through the Care system previously and now needed help to find a new place to call home.
Giving Liz that security, companionship and warmth from living with other people who understood the problems she was facing was critical. As she says herself, knowing there are people who care about you is one of the greatest gifts. Our team have also been able to give Liz practical advice through our Home & Money course, which helped prepare her for managing her own accommodation successfully.
Recently Liz has started an apprenticeship to help her achieve her ambition of working young people. Liz says that he life is looking very positive now and she is looking forward to the future. Thank you so much for your essential support which meant that we could be there for Liz when she needed someone.
Thank you so much.
