A Life-saving Service

One of Doorway‘s guests said as a passing comment on leaving the drop-in session a couple of weeks ago: “Thanks for everything. If it wasn’t for you, I’d have jumped off a bridge by now”. He agreed to put some thoughts on paper:

“I have recently started using Doorway after being made homeless, after feeling suicidal and depressed I felt alone and lost. After 5 weeks of visiting Doorway, Lisa, Mike and all the team at Doorway, I have been given a huge amount of support including legal advice, food, emotional support, clothing. I have come to realise that I am not useless. I know for a fact that without this service and support I would surely not be alive today. My deepest respect to staff and volunteers for a life-saving service.”

This is why we do what we do……..
