“We look forward to working with you to house the homeless in Scotland, and end homelessness in the UK!”

WHAT IS god saying to the SCOTTISH church?

Isaiah 58 says that we should provide ‘the poor wanderer with shelter’. There are many poor wanderers throughout Scotland. Can you help? Would you even know where to start? Come and speak to Green Pastures - we have been housing the homeless for over 20 years! 

WHAT DO GREEN PASTURES DO? 

Green Pastures provide the finances for purchasing a house as well as providing a comprehensive wrap around support package covering every aspect of the management and operation of a supported housing project.

This is your organisation's project, however you get to plug into the comprehensive range of support materials via the Green Pastures Partner website. You will receive training, encouragement and mentoring by our Scotland-based liaison team, enabling your project to reach its fullest potential, and to reach out to the most vulnerable people in our country.

“We exist to pursue freedom and restore lives. Aberdeen had next to no provision on the ground for Human trafficking survivors or even refugees/ assylum seekers in the North-East of Scotland. Through working with Green Pastures we have been able to offer some of these survivors a home, but more importantly hope”
