Making space to help homeless people
31 January 2018
Everyone deserves to have somewhere that they can call home. Self-storage company Kent Space is helping us make this a reality for more homeless and vulnerable people.
It is supporting our work by fundraising, donating furniture to our hostels and shared housing, and offering storage and meeting facilities for free.
“Kent Space is delighted to support Porchlight and their vital work with homeless and vulnerable people in Kent,” says the company’s director Sue McGowan.
“We wanted to support a local charity and think the work they do is very valuable, in winter but also all year round. It means a lot to us to be helping local people get back on their feet and into a more positive future.”
Porchlight has seen a drastic increase in the number of people rough sleeping in Kent over the last few years.
Support from local companies changes lives and enables us to continue giving vulnerable people somewhere safe, secure and homely to live while they recover from the trauma of the streets.
“We are so grateful to Kent Space for helping us help more people into a better future,” says Porchlight’s corporate partnerships manager Kate Boulding.
“When people come to stay with us they can be there for up to two years. In this time, they receive support that helps them overcome past struggles and learn practical skills and emotional resilience needed to live an independent and full life.”
