About Change Ahead
Change Ahead was founded in 2019, on the belief that everyone deserves a safe, secure place to call home and access to support products and services online.
Our team of dedicated professionals works tirelessly to provide practical and emotional support to those in need, from emergency accommodation to long-term housing solutions. With a focus on using tech for good and empowering our clients to take control of their lives, we aim to break the cycle of homelessness for good.
“Our mission is to improve the lives of those who are homeless or experiencing homelessness by providing safe and secure housing and empowering them with the knowledge and skills to become self-sufficient through education in urban hydroponic farming.”
