Another 21 homeless people off the streets

In May 2016 we helped 21 people find places to live.  These include:

 

  • A computer technician (35) into a private rented place in Islington
  • Our hospital discharge worker helped a 62 year old Jamaican man into temporary accommodation
  • A missing person (47) from Manchester was detained under the mental health act and taken into secure psychiatric accommodation
  • A woman (43), working part time, who lost her accommodation in Islington when the landlord sold the flat found a place in a night shelter
  • A couple (she was working as a nail technician) used the day centre services and found their own accommodation
  • A man with TB who had been rough sleeping on Tottenham Court Road (42) into temporary accommodation
  • A Sudanese refugee (37) who was rough sleeping at Paddington Green into a night shelter
  • An Indian man with mental health issues (42) into emergency accommodation
  • A man looking for work in the construction industry (30) and sleeping in a bin shed on an estate used the day centre and managed to find his own accommodation
  • A man sleeping outside our church in Hinde Street (32) was assaulted, in hospital but now into temporary accommodation
  • A refugee who was sleeping on night buses (28) into a hostel
  • A man who was rough sleeping in Hampstead (49) suffering from depression who had come down from Manchester into a hostel
  • An internationally recognised sculptor from Bulgaria (60) - who had become homeless - into an artist’s residency position
  • An Italian man looking for work (43) was rough sleeping in Soho but we helped find a construction job in the Netherlands and supported him to get there
  • A woman who needed help sorting out her benefits (52) who we were then able to assist into a private rented place
  • A man rough sleeping at Victoria (39) who we worked with the outreach team to get into a private rented place in Enfield.
  • And an Ethiopian woman (28) into night shelter
  • A 29 year old man was evicted from his rented place in Reading when the landlord needed it for his own family. He came to London and was rough sleeping by Paddington Station when he came to us for assistance. We helped him write up his CV and get a new job and gave him travel money to start working in a pub in Islington. Unfortunately he still hasn’t found anywhere affordable to live but we are continuing to assist him with this.
