Chris was like any parent – he wanted the best for his kids. But when his wife walked out, he could no longer afford childcare and had to give up his job and his only source of income.

Chris was like any parent – he wanted the best for his kids. But when his wife walked out, he could no longer afford childcare and had to give up his job and his only source of income. As the debts grew, life for this single dad became more and more difficult.

Thankfully, because of our 29,000 Life Changers, CAP was able to break into Chris’ situation with hope. Without people like you, this father may still be tucking his kids into a bed made of bin bags at night.

We lived on benefits and food banks. We were living in this shell of a house, with no heating, no carpet, no wallpaper, no fridge, nothing. We used to sleep on bin bags stuffed with clothes, using coats as a blanket.
