Hello, I'm John.
In my spare time I love sports and playing the violin, although it's been hard to keep up with my hobbies these past few years since becoming homeless.
Finding a job and a property have been my two biggest challenges. Sorting out a safe and secure place to stay, where I'm not worried about my safety or surrounded by negative influences, will make it a lot easier for me to then find a job.
In the future, I see myself having a permanent place to call my own and working full time. My dream is to one day become a web developer; I have been teaching myself at the library whenever I can. I also want to start working on building a family of my own - something I've never had much of in my life.
The support Beam brings lets me know that there's still good people out there, willing to help with no hidden agenda. I love helping others too, and the fact that people still care about homeless people and want to help make a change is amazing to me.
I never experienced help like this before, but I know it will bring a positive outcome in my life which I would be very grateful for!
