How you help build homes for care leavers in the UK

Josh was 22 when he first approached the YMCA for a safe place to stay.“It destroys the relationships you have, people stop seeing you the same.”

He had felt homeless since childhood, constantly passed between parents, one of his earliest memories was his dad punching his fist through the wall the night they split up.

“If you don’t feel like you belong anywhere, you haven’t got a home.”

In partnership with the YMCA and Tunbridge Wells Quakers, Habitat for Humanity have repurposed an old Quaker hall into flats for 9 young people escaping homelessness and transitioning into independent living.

Having recently moved into his new flat, Josh is feeling much brighter about his future

“If you’re comfortable being somewhere, you can call it home.”

Former US President Jimmy Carter doesn’t let anything keep him down! He got right back to work Monday, helping to build Habitat for Humanity homes in Tennessee - just one day after a fall at his home left him with 14 stitches on his forehead. Find the full story on our Facebook page!

OHHH 😯 I have some exciting news to share so keep reading.. I don’t know about you, but I am loving these types of sunnies. I borrowed them from a friend the second I saw them and was like yuppp need them for the picture haha. 😜 Okay, okay, now the news: My boyfriend and I are going to be doing a Habitat for Humanity build in a few weekends and I am so excited. With everything going on around the world with all the destruction from Hurricane Doreen, this couldn’t of came at a better time. We will be doing the build with his company and it’s just to give back to the community. I hope they don’t have me heavy lifting ;) hehe jk I can definitely try..just call me Lindsey the Builder! 🏠How do you help your local community?

Bia agora tem o lugarzinho dela para estudar, desenhar e brincar! Você sabia que a falta de um lugar adequado para estudar é um dos grandes fatores que prejudicam o desenvolvimento escolar de milhões de crianças no Brasil?
