At Hope into Action in the face of the rising tragedy of homelessness, we believe that churches can house the homeless. We provide homes for the most vulnerable in society in partnership with local churches. Our model is built on the belief that when people have a safe, secure home, surrounded by loving, non-judgemental relationships they find the strength to make positive life choices.
Together with over 60 churches, we house 200 people in more than 20 towns and cities enabling tenants to maintain their tenancies and many to improve social relationships. We are winners of The Guardian Public Service Award for Housing 2017 and Homeless Link’s award for Innovation in Housing 2018.
Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury captures what we do: “What I really admire about Hope into Action is that it has a holistic depth to it. Hope into Action allows people in our churches to recognise they can actually do something”. We partner with churches to enable them to house the homeless by providing shelter and housing know-how, whilst churches provide essential friendship and support.
Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home.
