Mary's story

"For a couple of years leading up to my 17th Birthday, me and mum didn't have the best of relationships. Two weeks after my 17th, our relationship hit destruction mode and I was kicked out. So my status was homeless for roughly two weeks. I went to a company called the YMCA and try referred me to Christopher house in yeovil.. As soon as I moved in, every other resident was so welcoming. The staff are amazing, they have supported me in every way possible, getting money on track and teaching me how to live independently, and helping me get my life back on track. I couldn't have asked for a better, happier place to live. The sense of community in the house is amazing, we are all just like a big family! There is always someone to talk to, wether it be a staff member or another resident. I love it!!"
