How does it happen?
Homelessness and vulnerability rarely happen because of one single factor. It is usually a complex web of reasons that sometimes have disastrous results. Some of the most common reasons for families to come to us are:
– Rent arrears
– Fleeing domestic abuse
– Poorly managed mental health
– Drug and substance misuse
However, it is not just homeless families that are helped by Save the Family.
We also offer accommodation and support to troubled and vulnerable families who are at risk of losing their children if they don’t change the way they are living. These families are signposted to us in order for them to get assistance with parenting, family life and other everyday skills.
