"The Homeless Project"
"The Homeless Project" started four (4) years ago when Jorciney Rosario in his thoughts was complaining with God, why He doesn’t do anything about homeless and poverty in general. He tried to hear God’s voice saying something to him, but he just hears a long silence, from God! But, suddenly he listened a distinct voice coming from God, saying to him: - “Jorciney, for this moment I created you!
Jorciney, is a black young men, an elder at the SDA with the age 27yo. He has born in St. Tome e Principe. He grew up in Portugal but at same point he decided to move to England, London city, following his mother’s footsteps. For living he is a team leader at Argos high street store.
"8,000 people sleep rough on the streets of London every year. They come from every walk of life, and many of them want to find work. We want to challenge the perception that homeless people are any different from the rest of us. Homelessness begins when something bad happens and you don’t have family or friends around to help. It could happen to any of us."(Streets of London)
Indeed, Jorciney spent most of his early adult life looking through them – The homeless. But, he was busy enough. He was working. He was helping his mum raising the family and running errands. He had things to do after woods. You know the people on the corner with the signs? It used to make Jorciney uncomfortable to see them, and he had to ask himself, "Why?"
After a while, he realized that his apathy towards the homeless was what made him uncomfortable. Then, he thought, “What if I traded apathy for empathy? Would that really be so bad?” The next homeless person he saw he parked his car and got out. He went up to him and told him he mattered. He asked him what would make his day.
- "A hot cup of soup," said the homeless person to him.
Jorciney told him he was the first homeless person he had ever spoken to. So Jorciney started to make a soup and acquired some equipment, in order to attend the needs of homeless people. After the delivery of the soup every fortnight in Charing Cross on Saturdays evening he asked to the homeless if there was anything else that would make their life a bit easier. They said the only other thing they wanted was to get enough extra money that day to buy a new pair of socks.
Socks, really? Sock! Such a simple luxury he used to take for granted. Now, he always has an extra pair with him alongside with the cup of soup he offers to them. A donation to "The Homeless Project" transforms Lives.
Do you have time to spare to volunteer with us?

Take homeless from the streets and get them a decent place to live ; Delivery a cup of soup/bread/fruit every Saturday evening in Charing Cross area instead of fortnight as it being done; Buy socks, sleeping bags, warm winter jackets; get material for decorate homes of seniors and people with special needs around our community and clean gardens and parks helping revitalizing struggling neighbourhoods; rent rooms to be given free of charge practical courses in Job search, Swing, Music and other skills.
"The Homeless Project" appeal is that:
“homelessness can happen at any time and to anyone. And when it happens to a young person it can affect them for the rest of their life. At least 83,000 young people in the UK are homeless right now and, with homeless young people almost twice as likely to die as their non-homeless peers.
