Mark was in the process of checking out from his accommodation and walking to his car, where he was going to be sleeping for the foreseeable future when we called.
Mark came to Alabaré Homes for Veterans as he sadly found himself homeless after leaving the Army. Through Op FORTITUDE he had been placed in temporary accommodation for a couple of nights while going through the application process. He was in the process of checking out from his accommodation and walking to his car where he was going to be sleeping for the foreseeable future, when we called.
Mark had found us through an online search of “veteran housing”. Once our team had managed to contact Mark to carry out a phone assessment and have a short conversation with him, it was decided that it was a priority to get Mark into one of our veteran’s Bristol homes.
Since joining our service a few weeks ago, Mark has enjoyed having a stable, supportive roof over his head. The team have been able to increase his benefit payments and has been helpful in developing local connections that may increase Mark’s stability. Since joining, we are enormously pleased that Mark has secured a very good job, which is relevant to the degree he had obtained prior to joining the Army. Mark plans to stay with Alabaré Homes for Veterans for a couple more months while he sorts out his finances, and then he hopes to move once again into his own accommodation.
