Re-Housing The Homeless
Fresh Horizons CNB has partnered with Green Pastures to provide supported accommodation for homeless individuals.
WE HELP THEM FIND STABILITY IN THEIR LIVES AND RETURN TO INDEPENDENT LIVING.
Our rehousing services are only available to people who have been referred to us by Night Shelters in Harrow and Greater London. However, we also take referrals from other voluntary or statutory organisations working with the homeless or street-dwelling individuals. Unfortunately, we do not accept self-referrals.
WHAT WE DO!
RECOVERY FROM HOMELESSNESS
We offer a stable and secure living environment for individuals who have a desire to return to mainstream living. Residents generally stay with us for a period of six to eighteen months and need to commit to our support programme throughout the duration of their stay. Our team will help restore their self-confidence so that residents are able to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Life skills training. Help accessing educational and employment opportunities. Advice on financial budgeting and overcoming debt. Assistance with accessing health and social care. Guidance in finding community facilities and resources. Support with resettlement into independent accommodation.
A percentage of our costs are covered by housing benefit as we qualify as a supported accommodation. However, our holistic support structure for skills training and counselling solely relies on donations from the community and our supporters.
DRUGS AND ALCOHOL POLICY
Fresh Horizons CNB is not an official drug or alcohol rehabilitation facility and we do not offer this level of medical care. In order to ensure positive results, we only accept individuals who exhibit a strong desire to return to mainstream living, are receiving support from statutory services for drug and alcohol dependency, and have shown significant compliance and progress. Ideally, we prefer not to accept homeless individuals with a current addiction to drugs or alcohol, but this will depend on their motivation, support and potential to progress.
