Hope4Havering’s name has changed!
We are now Ahava Community. “Ahava” means “love” in Hebrew but particularly giving practical love and it’s pronunciation is almost as if breathing love. For those who have supported us over the years, this is literally, what we do as we have served practically but also given strength and hope to those who are often at the lowest point in their lives. Our new website www.ahavacommunity.org is under construction.
Kim Merry CEO Ahava Community
The Transformations Programme aims to provide quality, comprehensive and compassionate care to men in recovery from all types of addiction including: Drugs; alcohol; gambling and other forms of addiction. We currently run a day programme integrated with our social enterprise guiding our residents through a rigorous and structured process of personal development– equipping and empowering men for meaningful and lasting life change.
The Catalyst Nightshelter is now 8 Years Old!
“Making homelessness history in Havering” is our dream. Join us as we celebrate the 8th Anniversary of the Catalyst Nightshelter providing essential food and shelter to over 1351 men and women but also housing 705 people.
Did you know that if we lined all the beds we have provided end to end from Romford – they would reach to Southhampton or Leicester?
We couldn’t do the work that we do without the love and support of our local community. Would you join us in our mission by volunteering time or supporting us financially?
Our Thrive Community Housing provides support and housing to 60 men and women in houses, flats and studio flats.
Graham lives in our Thrive Housing said “After living abroad for around 12 years, I returned to the U.K. having been offered work which included accommodation, unfortunately; this fell through, which meant I had nowhere to live and no income.
I was lucky enough to be put in touch with ‘Ahava Community’.
