Hope into Action is a registered charity whose unique purpose is to enable churches to house the homeless. Work began in summer 2010 with a handful of people passionate about changing homelessness in the city of Peterborough.
We provide not just shelter and housing know-how but also friendship. Together with over 50 churches we provide direct support to people whom others have often given up on.
The original home had a real heart for men coming out of prison. Homes are now available for a wide range of "homeless", people in recovery from addiction, people sleeping rough, women and children fleeing domestic violence, people coming out of rehab, former prostitutes, refugees, those suffering mental health issues and survivors of human trafficking.
Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. We believe that with our help, you and your church can do something about it.
