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.”

Components for the #habitatbuild keep piling up. Having all/most of the items early certainly helps determine positioning and spacing, but makes me very eager to get them in.

Why do we build? Because children who live in homes with leaking roofs, broken windows, nonfunctioning heaters or stoves, peeling paint, exposed wiring or unsafe/unclean environments often experience greater emotional and behavioral problems. We believe it’s our duty to help people avoid living like that. #HabitatFacts
