Our Stepping Stones Supported Housing Scheme is now formally closed, however we are now using the name to describe our scheme for supporting people off the street and into housing.
FAITH Christian Group offerered supported accommodation to men in recovery from addiction in Reading, Berkshire
Starting with our first house for 3 men in 2009 we took on 5 more rooms in local flats in November 2012
We had a full time support worker assisting them in setting achievable goals to change their lives which involves various support services such as alcoholics anonymous
This was an extremely expensive venture and although the basic cost of property was covered by the local authority,
we needed additional funding to allow us to provide the sort of support that our tenants required.
As a result with great sadness we decided in the summer of 2017 that we would work towards closing down this provision.
Our last tenants will have left us at the end of March 2018.
