Case Study March 2022

The Emmaus Hull team have been working with a chap who has recently just become homeless, we secured him many of emergency beds, but he was just finding it difficult to attend these beds on a night-time. He struggles with alcohol and when he is drinking, he forgets where he needs to be. We perceived and we kept getting him emergency beds in the hope that he would turn up to them and not be sleeping on the street. After 2 weeks of trying and many times not turning up for any beds, he admitted to us that he has been messing us around and was genuinely sorry for doing this. The team liaised with Hull city council and was able to luckily secure him a main within a hostel. The team told him that this was his best chance to get off the street and that he could present there today, the team rang the hostel later in the day and he turned up for his room. The moral of this is that you need to be patient with people and not give up on them because they might not turn up to places and forget about needing to be somewhere, but it is a real success that we were able to find him somewhere that was not the street for the night and that he could get some support and advice and move forward in life.
