So far our first home in Lincoln has been for women only and had 5 women and 2 children in its pilot period.
The women were all homeless and vulnerable - cut off from friends and family living in poverty. There appears to be a pattern appearing.
Please take a moment to take in Bev's story to help you understand a little more about what we do.
|“Just 4 months ago I was empty, felt nothing, was nothing, sleeping in drug dens and dirty. I went to prison for 6 weeks because I stole, there I met Vicar Andy and did the Alpha course. The prison put me in touch with HMM and the HIA Lincs project who visited me in prison then came and met me at the gates and gave me a home.
St Peters Church have helped me furnish my home, I have a great housemate who I get along well with. Do you know they have even helped me get my health sorted, I have support for my DVT, Im seeing a counsellor to talk about the rape and abuse, I have a new set of teeth built for me and people say I smile more! Not surprising really as now I feel hope, safe, like lifes worth living and I have even been intouch with my sister of 12 years. What would I say to anyone thinking about going to a HMM/HIA home? If I can do it anyone can. Go for it, its life changing!”
