Housing First Stories - from people involved in the programme
Tom had been homeless for seven years when he came to Housing First.
“I can feel I’ve started to move away from street life, I’m enjoying doing things that other people might take for granted like going for a coffee. I’m feeling better about myself.”
Louise has spent the last 11 years in prison. When she came to Housing First she was in a cycle of sofa surfing and rough sleeping.
“My support worker helped me feel more at home in the community. I started to move away from negative relationships.”
