The word “home” has a different meaning to each person, made up of their unique values, beliefs, and experiences. Home may be a literal place, where you formed your happiest, most cherished memories or somewhere that evokes a feeling of comfort and security. It may be a sense of warmth and joy generated by spending time with your loved ones or a place where you can be true to who you are. Regardless of what home means to you, having a place or people to call home is an important part of feeling safe, experiencing love and connection, and living a healthy and happy life.
