"I wanted to help Homeless people for a while as my husband had been homeless living on the streets from age 14 and I had heard some terrible stories. I didn’t know how to help other than giving out food on passing homeless people in the streets. A friend recommended Doorway and I applied to volunteer, not only does it feel good to help others but it has made a massive improvement on my mental health and social skills. It has been a huge step for myself to take as I hadn’t done anything other than taking care of my 2 special needs children the last 6 years and this effected my confidence. Volunteering and helping others has also inspired my children to want to help others."
