Launched in 2015, The Elms is a 44 bed facility providing emergency temporary accommodation for the people of Dacorum.
For people who have come through other DENS services, DENS Move On provides support for a move into more independent living. For homeless people who can afford to rent but don’t have the funds for a deposit, DENS has arrangements with local landlords to provide a guarantee for 2 years in place of a deposit.
DENS Furniture Warehouse is a shop with a major difference, with the ethos Give Sell Recycle.
Each person coming to DENS has their own personal story, how they ended up homeless. Here are some of the real life stories from our service users.
At 49, Andy was comfortable in his life in Worcestershire with a good job, a house, and a wife and daughter. Three months later he was out of work, at the start of a divorce and homeless. Andy was left alone and with nowhere to go.
