Kamilla was three months pregnant and homeless when two of our residents brought her to Highway House.
We agreed that she could stay for a few days, believing she would be eligible for emergency accommodation, but her stay was longer than expected. We set out to find her more suitable accommodation to settle into and prepare for the birth of her baby, however, much to our surprise, she was not eligible for any housing support, until she had given birth.
We had an important decision to make and Kamilla stayed at Highway House for a further 6 months until her baby was born. We were then able to help her return to her family in Poland, where she was reunited with her loved ones. Two years after leaving Highway House, Kamilla made a surprise visit to Highway House with her energetic three year old. She now works in London, where she has a home with her family.
