£0 remaining for accommodation and food
This gentleman have been living on the streets for a few years and has developed a way to cope by locating safe, undisclosed spaces to sleep in an attempt to promote mental health. Often these safe places are not for long once other rough sleepers discover the new location and the safe place is forfeited. The St Vincent de Paul centre would like to give this gentleman three nights respite in a hotel, which may act as a turning point, relieve pressure and help him to re-engage with the services that can help him.
This young woman, who has come to us from marital abuse, has been assaulted. The centre immediately registered her up for our local domestic violence initiative, Aspirations, and gave her food and clothes. She is engaging well, given the incredibly difficult conditions she finds herself in. Our intention is to provide a three-night stay as a temporary solution while this young woman makes connections with neighbourhood agencies that could offer continued support and, ideally, a covert housing transition.

This gentleman was recently released from the criminal justice system and was invited to visit the St Vincent de Paul (SVP) centre to explore what help we could provide. He is excited to assist with cleaning and set-up for both the day sessions and the night sessions. Additionally, he was successful in landing a place at a rehabilitation treatment facility. SVP is requesting three nights in a nearby bed and breakfast establishment, as a temporary stay before he moves to the rehabilitation housing, and a food package.

This gentleman, who has just become homeless, has been visiting the centre for clothes, lunch, and food packages. St Vincent de Paul (SVP) is asking for your kind donations in his search for a more permanent place to live. He hasn't slept well during his interactions with SVP and his mental wellbeing is affected. As a centre, we are asking for your kind donations to give him three night's respite in a bed and breakfast establishment and a food package. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
