One of these success stories is David Russell, who has turned his life around and is now on the verge of setting up a photography business.
He also volunteers with the soup run to help other homeless people.
David said: “I became homeless nine months ago and spent a lot of time on the streets in Worthing.
“In December, 2013, I started going to the Soup Run near the beach in Worthing, which was served by a team of people from Jubilee Church. This is where I met Peter, who gave me a lot of help and support.
“Peter came with me to look at a room in a shared house, it didn’t have any furniture but it was a room in a warm, dry house.
“Despite being homeless, the landlord was happy to give me a break and a week later I moved in.
“Peter’s wife, Sharon, runs the ‘Re Loved’ furniture project and she supplied me with a free bed, curtains, wardrobe, desk, bedside table, a lamp and pots, pans and plates.
“Since I moved in to my own room, it has given me quality of life.”
David has now started to build on his passion for photography.
He said: “I enjoy photography and spend a lot of my time taking photographs of everyday life and my surroundings, to gain experience, as well as actively looking for work.
“I have found that once employers find out I am homeless they don’t want to give me a job but I have gained confidence and have started advertising my photos in various businesses around Worthing.
“In the next three weeks I shall be starting a business course to start my own photographic venture.
“My life is now looking brighter and I feel very happy.”
