When COVID-19 arrived, and the work dried up, I lost the place I was living. As I wasn’t earning any money, I couldn’t find anywhere else to live.
I now feel really hopeful for the future, I feel much better about myself and I love my job.
"With the help of Emmaus, I have started a carpentry course at the local college and have settled into the community."
"I am delighted to be involved with Emmaus Hertfordshire after discovering the all-encompassing nature of its work to help people overcome homelessness."
"Emmaus supports people in all areas if it’s needed and the opportunities for moving on are very good."
"I think for most of my life I was in survival mode, but now I’m thriving, and I really can’t believe who I am today."
"Emmaus Hertfordshire helped me in each step of my life as an asylum seeker and continued to help me after I was granted asylum."
"The most positive thing about working at Emmaus is that I get to see first-hand where my hard work is going."
