Cedar Housing - Giving homeless young women in Nottinghamshire 'Hope for the future and support to get there'.Cedar Housing are a Christian charity, based in Nottingham, and established to provide housing, education and support services for vulnerable people affected by homelessness.
Every year hundreds of young women in Nottinghamshire find themselves homeless. In Broxtowe, Rushcliffe and Gedling, some estimates put the number at over 500 a year, but many remain hidden. Often a friendís sofa is all that stands between them and sleeping on a park bench.
Broken family support networks, personal upheaval, poor diet and risks to personal safety usually lead to ill health, becoming a victim of crime or exploitation and dropping out of education and work.
Our purpose is simple: take young women out of homelessness and support them towards independent living.
"Staying at Cedar has helped me to have a better relationship with my family"
"I have been able to make really good friends and have the support I have needed. Staying at Cedar House has helped me to become more confident and to understand how to be able to live with the money that I have."
(Without Cedar Housing) "...I would worry everyday about where I would sleep next, I wouldn't be doing college and I would still be in a very controlling environment.
