'The Shelter’s made it so worthwhile, knowing it gave me a place to re-think and rest'

I became homeless due to going to prison. When I came out I was straight onto the streets with nowhere to go, I become unwell and was rushed to hospital. I was then told about the Maidstone Winter Shelter. I was given a bed and full support to get back on my feet. I had a great outcome and will be moving into a bedsit after working and talking with these guys support, an amazing, successful outcome! The Shelter’s made it so worthwhile, knowing it gave me a place to re-think and rest, to move forward without losing hope, just a bit of warmth, a meal and a bed to regain some control over my life, I cannot thank these people enough.
