Cody’s story

"I had been homeless for 4 years since I was 14 and because of that my schooling was pretty poor and I couldn’t get a job.

When I first heard about Trinity Hill I thought that it might be ok for me cos I was staying at mate’s places and in and out of shelters. I had nowhere to call my own.

Anyway I went to Housing Connect and they helped me apply for a unit here and linked me to some other stuff to help me get my stuff sorted. Like I’m even cooking my own food now!

Since I came into Trinity I’ve had an opportunity to look at doing some stuff at college that I wouldn’t have had done if I wasn’t here.

Yeah, it’s good; I mind my own business and have met some really good people who I can talk to when I need to and do some fun activities."

Maya's story

"Before I moved in to Thyne House I'd been homeless for about nine months. Yeah, it's ok to stay at friend's places for a while, but I had to keep moving on. I spent some of that time in a young women's shelter too.

When I got the chance to live at Thyne House I thought it would be good to get a few other things in my life sorted out. Now I'm enrolled in a hospitality course which I love. I reckon I might get a job in hospitality because I've done a couple of placements already.

Also, with the support of the worker at Thyne I started to have more contact with my family. They accept me now and that makes me feel better about myself and my sexuality.

I've even got a really supportive GP that's helping me give up smoking! "

Rowena’s story

Rowena said her experience of homelessness was unexpected and shattered her misconceptions. “I had been couch-surfing and then ended up at a shelter,” she said. “I was sure that I’d be sleeping with one eye open and all my stuff would be tucked under my bed. I was imagining scary, dirty people. It was nothing like that,” she said.

“Here at Eveline House, the community within the place is amazing,” Rowena said. “Everyone has different stories, different experiences – but what we share is that in some way or another we needed help.  And having the workers here all the time is so convenient,” she said. “If you need to talk to someone, they’re here. I was sick recently and they got me into the doctor, and drove me there”.

Rowena, who has a customer service position, plans to work her way up in the business. “I am taking it a step at a time,” she said. “I like interacting with people and preparing their food – it’s an essential we all need.”

 

Funding

Eveline House is funded through the State Government. It is a partnership between Anglicare and Housing Tasmania to provide supported residential accommodation for Tasmanians aged between 16 – 24 years.
