When Kenny Marshall found himself on the streets of Belfast there was one place he could turn to for help.
The 29-year-old said without the support of the staff at The Welcome Organisation he would not be where he is today.
After overcoming drug addiction and getting a place of his own, Kenny is now wanting to give back to the organisation who helped him.
But as well as staff at the charity showing they cared, Kenny said one woman who put him up in a hotel one night he was sleeping on the streets near Botanic changed everything for him.
Now he said he cares about other people and enjoys coming to The Welcome Organisation to find out how he can help and support those who find themselves without a home, just like he did.
In a chat with Belfast Live, he opened up about how kind gestures have changed his life and his hopes for helping others.
