Worthing Churches Homeless Projects

Started in 1991 by four local Christians who took soup, blankets and sleeping bags to the seafront to offer to local homeless people. From this small beginning Worthing Churches Homeless Projects was born. Today this Christian charity has grown to have 40 staff members and over 250 volunteers and provides a range of services, which offer opportunities to regain independence. We now have five projects locally:-

St Clare's Day Centre providing hot and cold food, drinks, showers, a change of clothes, washing and drying facilities, medical services, chiropody, hairdressing, advice and suppport. About 30 people a day have a cooked breakfast served by volunteers.

The Direct Access Hostel allows people to stay for up to 8 weeks and work with staff to begin the task of rebuilding their lives and regaining their independence.

Cornerstone House, the Stepping Stones Project, enables clients to spend up to 2 years brushing up the skills they'll need to live in their own accommodation. This might include cooking, cleaning, rebuilding or making new relationships.

Delaney House - the Recovery Project - over the years experience has shown that for some people abstinence is not an easy option and could have catastrophic results, so this project gives clients an opportunity, with proper supervision, to stop drinking or taking drugs. Over a period of up to 2 years we will work with the client to help them manage their addiction and return to work and new life in the community.

Move On Project - an opportunity for clients to experience independent living with minimal supervision.
