Shekinah’s Housing First Torbay Service works to enable people with multiple and complex needs who are experiencing homelessness, to live the happiest, healthiest, most secure and fulfilling life they can.
We believe in providing people with permanent housing at the earliest opportunity, giving them choice and control over their lives and supporting them for as long as they need support. The Housing First Torbay Service enables them to make the best possible decisions about their future and increases their chances of achieving all of the goals they set for themselves.
