Over the past few weeks, our head office team have been collecting essential items for donation to our local charity, Worthing Churches Homeless Projects.
This morning, we took three heavy boxes of items including toiletries and Christmas treats to the local distribution centre – where they were gratefully received.
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects – was started in 1991 by four local Christians who took soup, blankets and sleeping bags to the seafront to local homeless people. From this small beginning Worthing Churches Homeless Projects was born. Today this West Sussex Christian charity has grown to 56 staff members and over 200 volunteers and provides a range of services, which offer opportunities to regain independence.
Worthing Churches Homeless Projects believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. They believe in showing those who need our help, that the wider community are there to support them and to offer hope for a better future.
The work undertaken by Worthing Churches Homeless Projects is crucial, people who live in our accommodation receive the specialist support they need to ensure their recovery. They empower homeless or insecurely housed individuals to achieve sustainable independent living.
Great work by all of our head office team, we are really pleased to have been able to help out in a small way.
