Brian's Story
Brian, 56 is an electrician to trade. His world fell apart in the late 1990’s when he lost his job due to ill health and relations with his family broke down. As a result, he became homeless and found himself going down the wrong path.

"I kept messing up and getting into all sorts of trouble - ultimately I lost everything. It really was a blessing when the Salvation Army told me about this place in 2001.

“I’ve always been a Christian and The Lodging House Mission provided the spiritual platform I needed. This has been a big thing for me. The chaplaincy has helped me find my faith again and guide me back in the right direction.

“For the last 12 years, I’ve been coming here almost every day. It has helped me develop and learn new skills.

“I’ve gained certificates for courses in First Aid, Basic Computing, Literacy and Number Crunching.

“The staff are very supportive and have encouraged me to set and work towards goals. Whilst I probably won’t be able to get a job again because of ill health, I’m really interested in learning more about Digital Photography and am hoping this will take me in a new direction.”


Brian feels confident about his future. He'll continue to use The Lodging House Mission to learn more about photography and is currently helping to produce the quarterly publication. Four months ago, the Council along with the support of The Lodging House Mission helped rehouse Brian. He now has a place to call home.
