Support for Homeless Families


Lilly Smith House, 15, Knightrider Street, Maidstone, ME15 6LP

What we do

We offer a range of services to homeless families, including temporary accommodation as an alternative to B&B whilst awaiting a formal housing offer from Local Authorities, to a full support service which enables people to identify the reasons for becoming homeless in order to avoid these in the future. Staff work on tenancy sustainment and resilience with individuals in order to ensure future or repeated homelessness is avoided. Where support is available/commissioned, key workers will work closely with other agencies to ensure the family receives the tailored support needed to meet the needs of each family member, making resettlement more achievable and providing a more stable future for the children and entire family unit. This ensures that the homeless children today do not become the homeless adults of the future.
