Street Connect is close to my heart. They work in my local area of Renfrewshire where there is a long-standing knowledge of addiction issues, but services are underfunded and thin on the ground. Street Connect does amazing work, walking alongside people as they go through the challenging road to recovery from addiction. I previously had the privilege to work in the Highlands with men overcoming addiction. Wow – what an amazingly strong person you have to be to face the trauma that has led you into a chaotic life where substance abuse seems to be your only option. It could happen to any of us, with the right mix of challenging life events or loss etc. Many men had been in seemingly successful careers and stable families, when one or two traumas sent their world spinning out of control.All people deserve love, respect and a leg-up when life hits hard and they fall down. Street Connect meets people where they are at; demonstrates God’s love to them and helps them every step of the way on the recovery path.A few pennies to Street Connect could go a long way to help someone change their life (and their family’s lives) for good!
