Routes to Roots is delighted to thank a player from AFC Bournemouth for an amazing donation which he has specified is to fund our new supported housing, Amos House, over the coming year. Amos House has offered accommodation to three of Poole’s rough sleepers since last December. We are providing practical, emotional and spiritual support to them as they take this first step back into society, with the aim of eventually helping them to find independent housing. The house is an ongoing cost to Routes to Roots as we are responsible for upkeep, maintenance and other management expenses. So, this is very generous and R2R is very happy that this Premier League player has recognised the vital support we provide to serve the needs of homeless people of all faiths in Poole. Up the Cherries!
