Hope House is run by Elim Church Centre, and aims to provide good quality hostel accommodation for homeless young women, aged between about 16 and 25 years old. The three-bedroom house is adjacent to the Church building and can house up to three females.
The Hope House project gives help to women who have been made homeless, but cannot get Council or Housing Association accommodation. Hope House provides a bridge for them, offering short to medium term accommodation, while they apply and wait for a more permanent solution.
It is a safe breathing space with warden support to give girls time to get themselves sorted. Most of them have been forced to leave their homes for some reason. Some will come from violent or abusive backgrounds.
The aim is to help them get established before they move on to more permanent accommodation. The women are helped to prepare a place of their own and to have the confidence to deal with the challenges of everyday living. We also offer advice in life skills, such as cooking and budgeting.
Hope House is a well-established project and has helped many young women during this time.
Please contact the church office or speak to Alison Eames (Hope House Warden) for further information.
