The once homeless father who got a new home

It’s easy to take things for granted.

I met a father-of-two a few weeks back whose relationship break up had left him homeless.

Lee Mobley, 40, spent two months homeless.

The day I met him, he was still getting used to a flat he could call his own. The floor was still bare, but it was home.

His joy at having a place to rest his head and to which his two girls could come and stay was palpable, and infectious!

“To have my own home again is tremendous, it means I can start thinking about the future.

“At last I have a place my two daughters can come and visit and am now able to get back to work.

“It is life-changing. It is home.”
