a home from home

March 1, 2013

Click here to read my latest piece from Inside Housing – about a beautifully converted former convent in Liverpool turned eco-hostel for homeless families.

One of the residents, a single mum-of-three, said the facility gave her confidence as it showed the authorities cared about her future. “It feels like whoever conceived this project has actually experienced being homeless themselves. And I think people can see that and they appreciate it. They are investing in people. This is not like having your own home, but it’s the next best thing.”
