What our previous companions had to say

It is an amazing charity helping the homeless, they even helped me. I’m so grateful for all they did, they gave me a chance to go to college, driving lessons and my room was beautiful.  I now have my own flat and I am looking for work.

I was a companion back in 2016, I am now a self employed Personal Trainer and I’m currently training to start a career in strongman competitions. If it wasn’t for Emmaus I’d still be on the streets and nowhere near achieving what I am today so thank you all.

Thanks for everything you did for me at Emmaus Hertfordshire. With your help I have worked a full year without having a day off due to drink.
