Target Housing is a charity and registered social landlord. Over the past 25 years we have shown that stable accommodation and support can help transform lives and empower people to achieve independence.
Target held our fourth St Martins Frontline networking event on the Friday 11th August with great success! Representatives from different organisations from across South Yorkshire attended. Those attending had the chance to listen to guest speakers, participate in workshops, promote their organisation and meet new people.
Target's students outstanding art work is now on display throughout the library areas of the Riverside House Building in the centre of Rotherham from the 1st August until the 31st August for all who would like to view the amazing work the students have been producing.
Tina suffered many years of abusive relationships resulting in physical injury and severe mental health issues. As a result she developed a drug dependency and, after committing an offence to fund her addiction, found herself in the criminal justice system. Consequently she lost custody of her two children and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
When Tina moved into Target accommodation she was struggling with her mental health, partly due to losing custody of her children and also as a result of the abuse she experienced for many years for which she had never received any support. However, she had been abstinent from drugs for over a year and had rebuilt a positive relationship with her mother who was now the guardian of her children.
In order to reach her goal of independent living and regain full custody of her children, Tina engaged with all support available to her. Her Target support worker helped her access mental health and domestic abuse services and she attended the Crisis Renting Ready course, for which she achieved the final accreditation. She also spent every weekend with her two children helping them with homework and rebuilding her relationship with them.
