Each year we fill over 3,500 beds from the start of November to the end of March.  We help around 70 people every year to find more stable accommodation.

More than 20 years ago a group of Hackney residents and members of Hackney church congregations (some of who had personal experience of homelessness), were thinking about how they could help the people they saw sleeping on the streets around Hackney. They decided that if each member of a group of churches took responsibility for running a shelter for one night of the week, some of those people could be helped and this was the start.

What started as a network of volunteers from local churches has developed into an effective route out of homelessness for many it supports. 

We receive no up front funding from local or national governments and rely on the donations, grants and fundraising from our patterns and supporters to deliver the service to our guests.
