Tenant Stories

Eddie's Story

Before coming to live at Common Ground Queensland, Eddie’s life was very transient. Over the last few years, Eddie has moved from place to place in and around Brisbane.

He spent a couple of months working and living in a Rehabilitation Centre and also about a year living in a tent near South Bank before he finally got his own place at the Hope Street building.

One of the Micah workers helped Eddie come to Common Ground as part of the 50 Lives 50 Homes Program. Since coming to live here, Eddie shares that his life has “quietened down” and become more settled.

Eddie has a few friends in the building, but mostly likes to mind his own business.

He likes that he has a place to stay and feels safe. In Eddie’s words; “It’s easy”.

This is Eddie’s Story.
