No one is too entrenched in poverty of any kind that they are beyond help. Over the years we have seen people overcome extreme adversity and circumstance to go on to achieve incredible personal success. We refuse to give up on anybody and believe that every rough sleeper is significant.
No one should face homelessness alone. We are convinced that wider society is part of the solution. We have seen clients go on to become pioneers of social development and champions of the community. We believe in building people into a community where they feel safe and are resourced to contribute. We believe that we all have a role to play and that we must stand against poverty together.
Everyone deserves the chance to advance themselves and see dreams realised. We see people break out of poverty and achieve incredible goals, developing every area of their lives. We believe in supporting and equipping people on their journey out of poverty and beyond. We believe in the people we work with and we love being part of their story.
“It’s so exciting to see long-term rough sleepers get and keep their own homes. I love seeing people realise they are worth more than the life they had been leading.”— Rough Sleeper's Outreach Worker
We work with a wide range of homeless clients in Bedford, the vast majority of whom have some degree of drug and alcohol addiction and many have been long-term street homeless with poor education or employment opportunities, criminal records, and family disconnection.
We believe that God is Good. Our Christian identity underpins everything that we do. Motivated by our faith, we are committed to following the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in his identification with those who are poor, vulnerable or forgotten.
We treat all people equally and work with people of all backgrounds, religions, races and sexual orientations without discrimination.
