Why a strengths-based response to homelessness?
Mayday has been pioneering a strengths-based approach to walking alongside those facing homelessness for over a decade. Through years of deep listening, research and evaluation we have concluded that relationship is key to offering truly person-led and strengths-based support. Through adapting coaching methods, often reserved for high-performing athletes, Mayday is transforming the shape of support for those transitioning through homelessness.
A PTS Response focuses on building a purposeful relationship with people experiencing a tough time that is based on trust and honesty. It is led by the person, at a time that works for them.
The evidence shows that this can enable people to:
- Identify and work towards meaningful goals and changes
- Connect or reconnect with others; explore & even build communities
- Challenge what’s not working, and even help shape better systems
