Giving Shelter: Paul's Story

Paul’s life fell apart in his mid-40s after a series of misfortunes and relationship breakdowns. He was forced to live in doorways and car parks as a result. But the local SVP Conference wouldn’t allow him to let these hardships dictate the rest of his life. Instead, they helped him set up a new home for himself and scoured countless charity shops so that they could get all his basic necessities. It took some months, but eventually Paul was settled into his new home and it was a joy to see him warm and comfortable. He wrote to his helpers saying: ‘Thank you all so much for turning my two rooms into a cosy home.’
