A route out of homelessness
Our mission is to provide routes out of homelessness for people in need in Hackney.
Working with the community to provide warmth and shelter to homeless guests through the cold winter nights and to support them in rebuilding their lives.

Homelessness doesn't discriminate
When you stay in a shelter you have a lot of time to think about your circumstances. I kept thinking how have I got to this point in my life?
I came to London to work
Paul came from Romania to find work in London and ended up living on the street, with a bed made from a pallet and cardboard.
Why Emma volunteers
"I was helplessly walking the streets of London, and looking away - simply not knowing what to do."
