On the whole, nobody chooses to become homeless, or find themselves addicted to drugs or alcohol with lives spiralling out of control. Nobody enjoys sleeping in a shop doorway, on a park bench, or under a pier, vulnerable to the elements and unsympathetic passers-by. We don’t choose to find ourselves in a position whereby because of maybe bad choices or circumstances maybe beyond our control, we have nowhere to go, no one to turn to or anyone who cares about us, where we are, or what we are doing. For that reason, ARC Communities has been seeking to be that body of people that can stand in the gap and ‘care’.
Our success is grounded in the relationships we’ve built with the Faith Based Communities of North Wales who have partnered with us to provide premises and donations of food, clothing and funding. Our Drop-Ins are manned almost entirely by teams of volunteers who undertake a whole range of duties which include catering, mentoring, gardening and cleaning.
To provide people with the support that they need to achieve their recovery in the community, helping them find purpose, and make the best use of all their skills and giftings.
By seeking to become self-sustainable whilst developing pathways for our participants into training and employment through income generative enterprise schemes and initiatives.
