At our harvest service on Sunday, October 13th, we once again supported London's homeless through gifts and donations for the work of Whitechapel Mission. Their website describes their work:
"The Whitechapel Mission has been serving the homeless and marginalised for 143 years – including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs. By encouraging each person to address the issues which caused their homelessness, we help them to gain the skills and confidence to make lasting changes in their lives.
We believe everyone deserves a chance, regardless of their background, race or religion. We are open every day of the year and expect to see as many as 300 homeless and vulnerable men and women each day. And we do this without public funding. We know that we can, and are, making a positive and lasting difference to the people who ask for our help."
