My mum passed away, I got into debt, and I lost my property and became homeless.
I slept rough at the back of the YMCA for 2 months. Halifax Street Angels looked after me and checked in on me, they brought me a cuppa and a biscuit. A local church supported me to get accommodation and eventually I ended up being housed at Happydays in supported accommodation.
Happydays gave me a home, they supported me to sort out benefits and debts, they gave me volunteering and a chance to be part of a community. When I felt ready, they supported me to move on to independent accommodation with light touch support.
I am happy now and for once in my life I feel settled.
