This week, we’d like to help a 20 year old pregnant woman from Wales called Bree, who was made homeless after her mum died.
Bree has struggled with severe anxiety for most of her life, to the point where she had to be home-schooled. Her mum was a huge support to her but she sadly died when Bree was 17. Bree’s dad didn’t handle her death well and kicked Bree out of the house - he said he wanted to grieve on his own.
Bree was sofa surfing for a period of time and then lived on the streets. She was placed in temporary accommodation for a short time and is now about to move into a permanent home – her first proper home in years.
Bree is five months pregnant and has no support from her family or from the baby’s father.
Bree was nominated by a homelessness support worker, who asked if we could provide some things Bree needs for her home and to help her prepare for her baby.
