Struggling to Find Shelter

June 7, 2024

Sam had always been punctual with his rent, but just a few weeks behind was enough to get him evicted. Now, with nowhere to go and no one to turn to, he found himself living in his car. Embarrassed by his situation, he couldn’t bring himself to ask friends or family for help. The weather was getting colder, and Sam knew this couldn’t last.

Despite having a stable job, the rising cost of living made it impossible for Sam to save enough for a new rental bond, first month’s rent, and essentials. The housing market was tough, and every attempt to find a new place seemed impossible.

The car was cramped and uncomfortable. Desperation drove Sam to seek help, and that’s when he found NZF. Understanding his urgent situation, Sam’s application was fast tracked as he needed a safe, comfortable place to sleep. He was placed in crisis accommodation while a more permanent solution was found.

Within a few days, a rental was secured thanks to a local real estate agent who realised the urgency. Thanks to your Zakat, Sam’s bond, rent, and essentials were covered. He could finally move into a warm, stable home. Sam was back on his feet, ready to rebuild his life with a newfound sense of hope and stability.
