Carrie's Home Foundation.

"We raise funds for organisations that help people break the cycles of poverty and homelessness."

This Is Our Story

We fund organisations and charities that are tackling the challenges people are facing with homelessness and poverty.

Carrie inspired us to pick up her passion by helping people who are facing poverty and homelessness.

Inspired by Carrie Kalman, Carrie’s Home Foundation is about helping people, especially the vulnerable, find a roof over their head. It's an issue which is often hidden but is very real and shouldn’t just be accepted.

Carrie was a wonderful and kind hearted person with an amazing practical and solutions based outlook. Her main goal was to help those who are struggling. Carrie spent her life giving and selflessly doing kind things for others. She was passionate about building a sense of community.

She believed in looking out for one another and sharing resources to create a happier and more peaceful society. Her belief was that the smallest things can bring in the biggest wins.

Carrie's Story

Carrie lived such a generous and inspirational life that she has left a lasting legacy what we will continue through the foundation.

Carrie’s Home Foundation has been inspired by the life of Carrie Kalman, from Reigate, Surrey. Carrie lived a generous and inspirational life that will live on through the work of Carrie’s Home Foundation.

Through a chance conversation during a hospital stay, Carrie discovered that somebody was living in a very difficult cycle which was having an impact on her wellbeing. She was desperately trying to put together enough money to move into a rented bedroom. At the end of each month, there was no money to save for her deposit of a couple of hundred pounds. Upon learning this, Carrie gave her the money as a gift. It changed her life.

Breaking the cycle

She was delighted to find a place she could call home and moved in the following month. Carrie’s gesture made a huge difference to this person’s life. It provided her with the assistance she needed to be released from this vicious housing cycle, which penalises people on lower incomes. Carrie helped to lift the weight off of her mind and help her on her journey through life.

Carrie’s Home Foundation was established to help people on lower incomes and those without a home to move into a home. With the reduction of funding, the ever increasing cost of private rent and the lack of affordable housing in the UK, help is needed.

We love our supporters.
