A home is more than a just a house. It is a place of belonging, a place of safety, a place of rest and much much more. Providing a home for a family will allow them to put down roots and become secure as they strive to survive in a very hostile world.
A simple home can be constructed for a few hundred pounds allowing a family a place to start and to build from. More substantial long-term homes cost a few thousand pounds to build and will provide security and stability that family life requires.
