A Home With A Difference
As a new member of the Highway church I was completely taken back by the dedication of Pastor Alex & Mama Dorcas to support the homeless. I admired how inclusive the shelter is in supporting those in need as well as the commitment of the congregation to support by volunteering thier time to cook as well as give monetary support.
The social issue of homelessness is close to my heart as I have spoken and supported the homeless in my own personal life and to hear their stories truly humbled me. So when I had the opportunity to see the work the shelter does it inspired me to devote more of my time to work diligently to help the church raise the funds it needs to offer more targeted support.
The shelter lack suitable storage facilities where residents can keep thier belongings, as well more up to date electrical goods such as toasters, kettle.
The church recently had a shower fitted for the residents however we would like to upgrade this. The area in which the resident's sleep requires a makeover due to wear n tear as well as the need for extra sleeping mats.
We really want to move to a bigger premises which can offer self contained space for residents with more complex needs.
Since we opened our doors in 2009, over 800 people have been helped with shelter, food and counselling, along with the opportunity for much needed companionship with others.
The Highway House shelters work with a range of public services to ensure we are able to offer the fullest support to our residents. We are open to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have no set time limit on an individuals stay. Instead, we work diligently with each person to ensure when they leave us they are ready to be independent once again and return to a full fruitful lives.
