Simon, who lost his job and his family home had to remain for 2 years 6 months at Bethlehem House until he managed to reduce his debts: that left him with very little spare cash but helped him to stay away from temptation. Simon’s story has a happy ending as he managed to save enough to buy a small car and has recently moved out to live in his own unit.
Robert made a successful transition from Bethlehem House 5 years ago but now supports other residents every Friday by leading a clay sculpting workshop in-house and supports others by volunteering with St Vincent de Paul Society, preparing the food for Louie’s Van and being an advocate for gambling reform. Robert will no doubt continue his active role in educating young people about the dangers of gambling.
