Sandra worked as a cleaner for over 30 years, in this time she was living entirely independently but found it hard to develop any sort of financial resilience.
She found herself diagnosed with a chronic illness and found it harder and harder to maintain her job. She eventually lost her job and her home and found herself sleeping on the streets and in tents outdoors for over a year.
Sandra started engaging with Crawley Open House and moved into the hostel 2 years ago. Since then she has engaged well with the team and has become a big part of the community. Sandra then moved into one of Open House's move-on houses, where she has gotten used to living independently again.
However, Sandra's time at the move-on house is about to come to an end due to budgetary constraints and she desperately needs to find her own flat by mid-February.
Your donation will help Sandra find a safe and secure home that she can finally call her own again.
