Alan Richards, Good Hope Men’s Service

Good Hope Men’s Service offered the place I needed when there was nowhere else to go


In December 2014 Alan was homeless and in desperate need of accommodation when he arrived at the doorstep of Community Housing Limited (CHL) Good Hope Men’s Homelessness Service in Queensland. Good Hope Men’s Service offered the place Alan needed when there was nowhere else to go.

With no stable accommodation in sight and lacking a history of renting through real estate agencies, things looked impossible and without hope. It wasn’t until CHL staff at Good Hope Men’s Service began engaging with Alan to assist him to work through the obstacles, that he was able to secure affordable housing in his local area.

In April 2015 Alan secured long term stable accommodation provided by CHL and hasn’t looked back since. Most recently Alan has been employed by a local painting company to complete a number of ongoing projects around his local community and he is looking to build on this opportunity that finding stable housing has made possible for him.
