“I was living on the streets of Newcastle when I left domestic violence. I turned to prostitution to earn money and find somewhere to shower, and slept places I felt safe.
“I went to the Department of Housing and registered for housing. I was soon relocated to stable accommodation. This gave me a stable home to deal with the effects of domestic violence and my substance use.. Without stable accommodation, I would not have been able to get my life on track. I had a place that I could base myself from, and a place to recover that was safe. Most importantly, I had a place to call home.
