At HARP, we believe that with the right combination of shelter, support and educational, confidence boosting activities everyone has a good chance of overcoming homelessness. We help everyone who walks through our doors to address any issues that might surround their homelessness and help them get back on their feet again. Here are just a few stories from some of the people we have helped...
Ray had been moving between the homes of different friends and family for 20 years, having lost his home when the death of his mother in 1999 had a profound effect on him. When his options eventually ran out, Ray spent a few days sleeping in his car before he found out about HARP. He’s now living in our supported accommodation and is looking forward to moving into a place of his own.
Jack is 25 years old and came to HARP in June 2019 after being evicted by his landlord. He had been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, which he used as a coping mechanism after his dad died and resulted in him losing jobs and eventually his home. Whilst at HARP, Jack got back on his feet, started recovery from his addictions and started studying.
