The project went live in October 2015. In that time it has supported well over 20 people and found long-term homes for 14 people. 9 people, including 3 children, are currently housed by Thousand 4 1000 of those only 3 have refugee status and are thus able to contribute something towards the rent.

It is a project that works. By bringing together people from across the whole community, the project leverages the power of small acts of solidarity to bring people home. These slightly fictionalised stories give a sense of the differences that small acts of kindness from strangers have made to the lives of some of the most destitute people in our society.
