Hope Housing aims to reduce homelessness through providing homes and emergency accommodation in volunteers homes. Currently we have 3 properties which Green Pastures and other housing associations allow us to use. We have partnered with local churches near the houses and they provide volunteers to support tenants who have previously been homeless. We also have a team of Christian volunteers across Bradford who have been trained up to have a homeless person come and stay in their spare room for the night. Hope Housing then work with the guests the next day to help them find suitable longer term accommodation. Hope Housing works with anyone who finds themselves homeless or rough sleeping in Bradford. However the aim of the project has always been to cover gaps in service provision. With this in mind we have specialised in our work with Central and Eastern European migrants.
We have 17 bed spaces for single homeless people in Bradford. We have single properties and shared houses to house both male and females. We have housed 1,400 people since we started 10 years ago.
We do this because everyone needs and deserves a place that they can call home. The ethos of Hope Housing Bradford is to end homelessness in Bradford which is what Jesus wants us to do. When he calls he equips and we have been so blessed in our now 10 year plus journey. We are on our way to achieving the ending of homelessness in the City but much is still to be done!
We aim to end rough sleeping and homelessness in Bradford in the next 5 years. A difficult task, - but with God all things are possible!
