Jenny’s story

  • Like thousands of young people every year, Jenny found herself with nowhere to live when she was 20 years old.
  • She moved into a young person’s hostel until she became pregnant and was no longer able to stay in her accommodation.
  • At risk of becoming homeless again, Jenny was referred to the local charity Developing Health and Independence (DHI). She became one of the first residents of an affordable and safe apartment created for young homeless people.
  • Now 25 and a single mum, Jenny is living happily in the same apartment and has found a new job thanks to the stability that her home has provided.
