Shelter is a basic human need

We are continually inspired by the scripture in the book of Isaiah which says

My people will live in peaceful dwelling places,
in secure homes,
in undisturbed places of rest

This is our guiding principle.  Only when people have this can they ever hope to progress onto the next step in their lives.

Inset: One of our former residents Mick pictured with Georgie Good after receiving his Oscar award for New Volunteer of the Year award at the CVS award ceremony at the Old Swan hotel in November 2017.  As we have supported Mick he was then able to support an older person who was in the last period of his life.

Ways To Help
