Our Story Skye Alexandra House
The idea of Skye Alexandra House came about in the summer of June 2013, after the founder Sherica Spence had an encounter with a young girl, Shantel, who at the time was living in a semi independent accommodation above Sherica’s flat.
Sherica saw the lack of care provided to Shantel and the other young girls in the home and the fact that these young girls were not provided with basic living skills or help to prepare them for life after care.
She decided that with her own life experiences and the insight of Shantel’s experiences within the care system that she was going to open her own 24 hour supported home that provided the help, skills and support, but most importantly, the love and care, that young girls will need as they begin their journey to womanhood.
