We believe that the answer to homelessness is not a bed, but a home - a place where someone truly belongs. Hope House aims to provide a safe and secure home environment for up to 14 residents as they strive to rebuild their lives and thrive in our community once more. Our community life involves establishing positive routines including cooking and eating together; access to vocational training and medical support; exercising; and development of life skills. We are a dry house which means we are drugs and alcohol free in order to help residents overcome addictions or other life challenges.
We provide a hostel for up to 14 individuals at any one time. We have worked closely with our residents to equip them to find transformation in their lives and are so encouraged by the progress that so many have made.
The vision for Hope House emerged after St Thomas' Church in Brampton realised the gap in homeless provision in the area. Rev. Sally-Anne Beecham, a Trustee of the charity commented, "After getting to know homeless people at the Winter Night Shelter we realised that just giving vulnerable people accommodation isn't enough. We hope that Hope house will provide the support, love, patience and the family that every person needs, yet so many are without."
We can't wait to continue to grow and be able to provide more homes for more individuals affected by homelessness. We aim to see the end of homelessness in our country!
