Meet SHADOW who is 14years old and found himself with his daddy out on the streets homeless.
A couple months ago I was called by a case worker of theirs from a homeless service to see if we could offer support to Shadow. Dad & Shadow have been living on a mattress under a bush with rats running about which enraged me 😡
I went to meet the caseworker and my main concern was the lack of available support in getting them OFF the streets, So I gave my advise on where to try and I spoke with dad of Shadow and forms were then being filled out . .
In the meantime dad was also trying himself and the other day when I called him to see how they were doing he gave me the amazing news that he had sourced work on a farm with accommodation who were happy to have Shadow too, This has been thoroughly checked out by his caseworker to ensure it was all above aboard and safe for them both in which the caseworker gave me the thumbs up. .
Dad had a problem tho that could jeopardise them getting to the location, he had no money to obtain a train ticket, without a second thought DOTS got straight on line and bought him the train ticket and this morning I travelled over to them both with a boot full of goodies and essentials for them and to give him the ticket, it felt like a golden ticket I was handing him when I gave it, the gratitude and thanks was so very evident. .
As you can see Shadow took what he liked , his new toy, and I have to be honest when I waved them goodbye I had tears rolling down my face feeling relieved they will be off to a better life , in the warm and still with each other. Dad will keep in touch and we will gladly send any food/essentials to dad should he need!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU BOTH 🐾🐶❤️
