“For the first time in my life I had someone to really listen to me.” Paul.

My life spiraled out of control after I lost my son to leukemia. I became homeless, isolated, lonely and depressed – and I was struggling with drinking and gambling.

When I first moved in my mood was very low. I felt alone and without purpose in life. But the lady who came alongside me to support me was so amazing. I cannot thank her enough. From the early morning phone calls to get me out of bed and the impromptu offers of coffee for a chat and a catch up.

For the first time in my life, I had somebody who was prepared to really listen to what I had to say. I would like to thank everyone for everything they have done since I moved in to one of their properties. Without that support I would not be the person I am today, or the person I will become in the future.
