Supporting homeless women
We believe that EVERYBODY deserves to be loved. Many of the women we work with don’t feel like this to begin with. But over time, with the help of our support staff, we help each individual to become a better version of themselves.
Many of us experience periods of helplessness, low self-esteem and depression. In some cases, this can spiral into self-destructive patterns. It can lead to homelessness, substance abuse and mental health problems.
We want to create an environment where homeless women can feel loved, valued and able to contribute to the community around them.
We’re here to help homeless women who looking to change. Women come to us from a range of different backgrounds. We can’t change the past, but we can help each of our residents to look forward to a brighter future.
Our mission is to provide a safe, loving and supportive home for homeless women in West Yorkshire. We’ll equip and empower them for independent and fulfilled lives by sharing the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that God has blessed us with.
We aim to support homeless women for as long as it takes. There is no quick fix, but all it takes is a desire to change.
A Christian Perspective
Our support for homeless women comes from Christian foundations. We don’t ask our residents to convert to Christianity, but we do ask them to respect our values and beliefs.
To quote our mission verse:
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favour has come and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.”
– Isaiah 61:1-3
