Cambridge Churches Homeless Project
Preparing for winter 2017/18
Plans are being finalised for the Cambridge Churches Homeless Project for the coming winter. We will start on Monday 4th December 2017 and will be open every night until the morning of Tuesday 3rd April 2018.
The project is hosted in a different church or community centre each night. Initial referrals are via Jimmy's Assessment Centre in partnership with other agencies. Each night up to 15 homeless men will be offered a hot meal, friendship, pastoral care and a safe warm place to sleep. Guests leave in the morning to have breakfast and showers at Wintercomfort
We work in partnership with local homeless agencies, so that our guests get the best chance to find the accommodation and support they need.
We acknowledge the generous support of many people who donate their time and money and hold us and our guests in their prayers.
Donations are used for pay for equipment and materials for sleeping and cleaning, for printing and paperwork, for third party services such as cleaning and storage, and for at least one paid role to help with managing and transporting the "kit" from place to place. We also offer our guests some basic welfare items. Where funds permit we are able to do more to help our guests move on, working with local agencies.
At the present time the CCHP is part of Hope Cambridge.
We need many volunteers. There is a range of roles on offer. To express interest and find out more please email:- email@example.com
Please feel free to print off and display our 2017/8 poster which tells you more about the project and gives dates for the training evenings one of which each volunteer must attend.
