I got kicked out of my house and I had nowhere to go, so I was living in a back alley for about a month. It’s a hard life when you’re on the streets, you look at things differently. It wasn’t a good experience, it’s like you’ve got no help and you feel alone and in the dark. I just had a quilt and the cat.
I moved to The Y in March and it was a warm feeling that you are looked after and help is actually available even when you didn’t think it was. I’ve been helped out and been very grateful for it; things like helping better my finances, updating my CV and help with routines. If I need anything then they’ll do their best to try and help me. Now I’m going to make my life better and I hope to get a place of my own soon and then make other people’s lives better.
