A breakdown within my family resulted in me becoming homeless. I sofa surfed for a few months until I found out about Stay and contacted them for help. I was mentally unwell when I came to Stay but they have helped me become physically and emotionally stable. They have helped me gain trust, build confidence, gain life skills such as cooking, cleaning, budgeting, understanding letters etc. Stay also assisted in building contact back with my family. I am currently at college training doing a counselling course whilst working at a local hotel. I am feeling very positive about my future now and hope to one day become a therapist and help other people.
