A group of volunteer and community leaders have started a social media initiative called Samaritan’s Pouch.
It aims to be a new way of helping people who are experiencing homelessness.
“We’re not just looking at them as a problem.
We’re looking at their journey to get there.
It’s really about the journey.
It gives people the tools to get through this,” said Sam, who was homeless for eight years.
“They need the community to help them through it.”
The Samaritan Pouch Facebook group was started by social worker, Helen MacLean and the charity ShelterAid.
That’s why we’ve chosen this model to build the Samaritan Trust Fund,” she said. “
It’s about them not being trapped in a place where they can’t get out.
That’s why we’ve chosen this model to build the Samaritan Trust Fund,” she said.
ShelterAid, which runs several shelters in the city of Norwich, is looking to build a Samaritan trust fund for people who have been homeless for a year or more.
They have already set up a crowdfunding campaign to help raise money for the fund.
“I was really keen to give them a platform to share their experiences with people and hopefully be able help them to improve their lives and their lives as a result.” “
There’s a huge gap between where they are now and where they need to be in the long-term.”

Helen said the group’s focus is on those who have experienced homelessness or who are homeless but do not yet have the resources to help themselves.
“People who are on the streets, they’re struggling with homelessness because they have no home, no place to go to, they don’t know where to go for help, and that can have a devastating impact on their health and their mental health,” she explained.
“The Samaritan Project is really about giving people a safe place to get their help.”
‘It’s been tough’ Samaritan has been able to help a number of people who were experiencing homelessness in the community.
“When we first started, it was really difficult for people to get out of bed,” said Helen.
The social worker has found that many people in need have been given a chance to rebuild their lives. “
But now that we’ve been able help a few people, it’s been really positive for us.”

“One of the things we’ve learned is that many of the people who we have helped are very grateful for it.
Some of them have come out of homelessness and have started working in a job, or have gone on to be part of a social enterprise,” she added.
“I think that’s something that has really helped us build a trust and that has helped people through the whole process of recovery.”
