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.”

If you’re not into partying or baking, you can still support the challenge by making a donation to our vital work.

Give today

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to give back to your community, even if it’s a small bit? Matt and I spent the morning volunteering at a Habitat for Humanity build, and every time we do things like this it’s always a humbling experience that also gives us renewed pride in our little community. There are so many ways and opportunities to get out there and volunteer your time, talents, and efforts to help your local community and I urge you all to get involved! It doesn’t take much just your willingness to help. Now that it is raining and turned into quite a chilly fall day we’re cozying in with a good snuggly blanket a movie and our hound. Speaking of cozy, how cozy does this family room in sweetshadylane look? I could definitely spend a rainy dreary day like today in it! 📸: sweetshadylane •
