Barnabas House is a project under Extending Grace Charity, in Gravesend, Kent. We help to relieve the immediate suffering of the homeless in our community, we provide opportunities for better life; not just to provide homes for homeless, but also support their emotional, physical and employability needs for them to make a smooth transition to independent living. We currently have 8 bed spaces across two houses.
We have had 120 applications received so far and we’ve been able to house 26 to date. We have supported 4 to recover and moved to independent living, out of which two have gained employment. We currently have three of our current residents volunteering within the community and we continue to share the word and praying with them.
We are a Church group that support a lot of families in our community and Barnabas House was started in order to further support the under privileged beneficiaries with the aim to relieve poverty and help them achieve a better life as God originally intended for them.
Our aim is to continue to expand until we see Gravesham streets become free of homelessness.
