Our Mission

Streets2Homes aims to offer a place where all the street and hidden homeless in our community can rest, make friends and assist with basic needs. We believe that everyone – regardless of age, sex, culture or religion – has the right to adequate income and shelter, opportunities for education and employment, quality healthcare and nutrition, and that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.

A desire for social justice and a deep and genuine concern for people are characteristics of our work. We help link isolated individuals to services that sometimes discriminates them, and to empower them to start the process of taking control of their lives.

The day centre is open from 8.45am-2pm Monday to Friday providing essential services such as shower facilities, clean clothes, food etc. advice, support and practical assistance.

The office is open from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday for appointments.

We provide on-going tenancy support for our clients to ensure they are able to sustain their tenancy.

We also have accommodation projects. We currently have 2 properties comprising of 8 bed spaces that have staff available to offer support daily 7 days a weeks. These properties enable those not ready to live independently to gain the right guidance and support that will lift the barriers to them sustaining a tenancy in the future. Once the resident is ready to move on we have staff that can help them seek and secure more appropriate accommodation that suits their needs.

We have a specialised accommodation project for women who have previously suffered domestic abuse but are not suited to living in a refuge. A specialised Womens Project Worker supports the women to access services and opportunities that will help them overcome any issues or barriers they are facing.

All our staff are trained in Trauma Informed Care and our projects are psychologically informed environments

Stories

I looked after my wide when she had cancer and when it came to her final days it hit me like a hammer. Me and my stepson could not get on with other any more, so I went back to Harlow to see, and be closer to, my family, but they had moved to another town. I started to sleep rough and had to lie on the grass so there was nowhere else to go. Then some people found me and took me to the centre called Streets2Homes where they took care of me. At the centre someone set up a tent for me so that I could keep dry instead of sleeping on the ground. Within a few months I was asked if I would like to have a room. I was over the moon with excitement and very happy that there was a light out there to help me. That was in July so I have been safe and secure since then. I offered to do some volunteering at the centre, which is good as it gives me my dignity back and helps me to give something back to them for all the help I've received.
