Our Shelter provides a warm welcoming place of safety and sanctuary to our guests for whom for the majority of them the only alternative would be sleeping out on the streets. Since we opened at the end of July we have provided accommodation to 21 individual men, and for most of this time the shelter has been full with no vacancies.
