No one should have to face hardship this Christmas

Micks story

As we all know this year has been hard for us all, but especially for people who are homeless and living on the streets. Helping people who are homeless is what we do, and so we want to make sure that we’re there for as many people as we possibly can this winter after what has been a devastatingly tough year for so many. 

Help us help people like Mick. 

Following the breakdown of his marriage, Mick lost his job as a chef and eventually his home. He walked the streets of Glasgow not knowing where to go or who to turn to, but he was referred to The Salvation Army who gave him the support he needed. 

Mick was helped by our supported accommodation centre in Glasgow and then offered a permanent home through the Housing First project – a ground-breaking rehousing scheme which is supported by The Salvation Army. Mick credits the project, especially his support worker Sharon, for turning his life around.

"Through the Salvation Army I was offered a place on the Housing First project. It's been life-changing. Having my own home and being able to lead a normal life means I can have a proper relationship with my children again.”
