Goal

Supporting Roofless Young Mother


We are working hard to relieve the distress and relentless anxiety faced by one of our SOAR Service members who is roofless. This is a young single mother with a child having special needs. Her situation does not fit the admission criteria of a number of residential care facilities for adults and their children. She has been in and out of shelters and hopes against hope that soon her special needs child will be able to feel safe and settled. BUT the young mother cannot afford the price of a private rental or a shared accommodation. Reluctantly, she accepts offers of space where to spend the night but this places her at risk.


   Shelter spaces are limited and her child’s special needs make them more difficult to access; they are not a fit for their situation. Soon, Housing Authority will be allocating social accommodation for this young family but, until then and until the allocated place becomes habitable, the no-choice house-hopping needs to stop. 

   

   We are now on the point of securing a rental for 6 months - thus giving the young family breathing space, safety and time to recoup a measure of mental well-being.

   

   We aim to raise Euro 3,900 to cover rental expenses. We shall be assisting with other urgent basic needs. 


   Should we exceed this amount, we shall inform everyone through our Facebook page and add the funds to our DEBT RELIEF Fund which, as many of you know, we launched last year to be able to help families whose income is insufficient to cover the cost of basic needs.


   We are also searching for a Volunteer Mentor to continue supporting this resilient young mother and her child during the coming months. Spot coaching and mentoring will be provided. 

   

   Should you wish to offer support, kindly send us a message on 79602595 and we will meet you to get to know you and to discuss in depth how you can help.   


By providing long-term support we can, together, continue to make a huge difference in the lives of families in distress. 

          

   Thank you.
