Graham lives in our Thrive Community Housing said “After living abroad for around 12 years, I returned to the U.K. having been offered work which included accommodation, unfortunately; this fell through, which meant I had nowhere to live and no income. I was lucky enough to be put in touch with ‘Ahava Community’.

After 2 or 3 months, they found me a nice bed-sit in Harold hill: there are 5 units in the property and being assisted living. I try to repay their help and generosity by doing voluntary work.

I cannot express the level of my gratitude for helping me and praise them for their dedication to helping the homeless of Havering, being in this situation has opened my eyes and I am now aware of things I had never noticed before, there are so many people sleeping rough through no fault of their own; Kim and her team  are having a noticeable effect in helping these people to re-start their lives.

Ahava Community truly deserve all the praise they can get and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.”
