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 1240 men and women but also housing 657 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 27 men and women in houses, flats and studio flats. All the housing is accessed by the Catalyst Nightshelter. We soon hope to be providing 10 more units of accommodation.
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 ‘Hope4Havering’ who looked after me, giving me places to sleep (we were in different Church halls on a weekly Rota) food was provided and they helped with benefits claims.
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 do this from our 6 bed facility in Upminster in Essex, from which we guide our residents through a rigorous and structured process of personal development– equipping and empowering men for meaningful and lasting life change.
Hope4Havering is branching out into social enterprise for a sustainable future. Eben Wood, our shop that features original designed clothes combining African fabric and upcycled clothes, opens week beginning 11th November 2019. This shop is opposite Lidl and Fitness First on Atlanta Boulevard, South Street, Romford.
Hope4Havering Furniture Shop
Our Hope4Havering charity shop opens from 18th November 2019, on the corner of Atlanta Boulevard on South Street on the site of the former Money Exchange. We are sincerely hoping that money will continue to be exchanged for our donated furniture in order to help the homeless in our Borough.
