Homelessness is not a lifestyle choice, there are those who try to convince you otherwise, it is barely a life at all. People are homeless for lots of reasons – fleeing domestic violence or sexual abuse, loss of a job, loss of a partner or family member, leaving the care system with few resources, being in addiction or being mentally ill – to name a few.
At Sanctus, we don’t just help the homeless, we help people avoid evictions to keep them housed, we help those fleeing domestic abuse, we help people housed but with mental health or other medical issues, we help those sofa-surfing, ex-offenders, those with benefits issues or struggling with their finances. We are also rapidly increasingly helping those suffering from the cost-of-living crisis, trying to prevent people from moving into more severe situations. Prevention is a crucial part of our process. We can only achieve all this through your donations.
We are incredibly grateful for every donation to Sanctus, large or small, your donation makes a huge difference and helps us to keep our doors open.
