People who become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless not only have to deal with the hardships that come with it, but they can also become victims of exploitation.

Not having access to a stable income or able to rely on financial support from family and friends means that criminal activity – such as dealing drugs or low level fraud – could be an attractive option as a means of getting by.

At Homeless Oxfordshire we are working tirelessly to protect and safeguard our residents from being targeted by gangs and exploiters who prey on vulnerable people.

Stress Reduction is a huge benefit of reading…
Stress from all areas of life just slips away when you lose yourself in a great story.
A well-written novel can transport you to other realms, while an engaging article will distract you and keep you in the present moment, letting tensions drain away and allowing you to relax.

Many of our clients don't have that luxury, because they find reading a challenge. And being homeless is extremely stressful.

Our Book Club is here to help the overcome that. All subscriptions fund improving our clients' literacy.

Our support staff play a fundamental role in client’s recovery from homelessness.

They offer practical and emotional support to people when they are facing some of life’s toughest challenges.

We 🧡 Paul’s quote:

"At first, when I became homeless I just didn't know what to do. I felt like giving up. Having a meeting with someone, one-to-one, who is going to help and support you, makes you feel a lot more comfortable. It makes you feel like not giving up. And I haven't, now I've got my own flat"

Looking forward to our Book Club meeting on 20th August - this will be a great discussion.

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is a 1987 novel.
It weaves together the past and the present through the blossoming friendship between Evelyn Couch, a middle-aged housewife, and Ninny Threadgoode, an elderly woman who lives in a nursing home. Every week Evelyn visits Ninny, who tells her stories about her youth in Whistle Stop, Alabama where her sister-in-law, Idgie, and her friend, Ruth, ran a café. These stories, along with Ninny's friendship, enable Evelyn to begin a new, satisfying life while allowing the people and stories of Ninny's youth to live on. The book, which was made into a 1991 film, explores themes of family, aging, sexual orientation, and the dehumanizing effects of racism.
