Hi my name is Viktoriia. Housing has been a huge challenge for myself, my husband and our 3 children recently. Since evacuating from Ukraine, I have been staying with a kind host family for nine months, but getting our own home has been really hard. I often couldn't even see available homes because there were so many people interested and many landlords said no to us because of our financial situation - even though my husband and I work very long hours to make ends meet. Needing to be close my children's school has also added to the challenge. I'm looking forward to the support from Beam as we move to a new place. It will be wonderful, and I'm excited for our children to settle into a nice, lovely home.
It's really nice to think that people want to help us achieve our dream, especially coming from Ukraine. The support that people have given us, has really made a difference
