A ticket to ride!

Our agent told us today of a man she had come across as part of her work supporting the homeless in her hometown.  This man had driven up from another part of the country to try to find family.  He had ended up giving away his car, his laptop and all his clothes apart from those he stood up in, and had been living street homeless for the past two weeks.  He realised that he needed serious help with his mental health and asked for help.  So our agent secured him mental health intervention in his hometown, she just needed to get him home again.  This is where we come in, we agreed to pay the £20.60 for his train fare home and a small extra sum of money to purchase some food.  A volunteer agreed to travel with him to make sure he got back safely and was met by the crisis team at the other end.
