Evergreen House provides supported accommodation for 4 people in the Mendip area. We have some wonderful volunteers attached to the project providing ongoing support for the residents. Evergreen House is part of the wider Connect team who aim to support people out of homelessness and into their own sustainable housing.
We have successfully moved on 3 people into their own tenancies in the first year of opening Evergreen House which we are immensely proud of. We have made home improvements through decorating and furnishing the property and we have tried to cultivate a homely environment where the residents adopt our value of we all have something we can give and we all have something we need.
Connect Elim is about participating in community life. We all have something we can give and we all have something we need. More than a community project or weekly church event, Connect Elim is about the discovery of hope, meaning and strength through the connecting our lives.
We would like to convert the garage into a 5th bedroom in the coming year and we would like to try and obtain funding for an employed support member of staff working in Evergreen House.
