Jimmy's Cambridge

Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Jimmy's is the only emergency accommodation provider in Cambridge. We offer a warm, welcoming environment to 22 men and women (and two dogs) who would otherwise be forced to sleep rough or in inappropriate or inadequate conditions. In addition to this vital emergency service, we work to help our guests address their issues, gain new skills and take control of their lives, so they can move off the streets and into more permanent accommodation elsewhere.

Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    Jimmy’s is a place where confidence and self-esteem can be regained; where relationships can be forged; where new interests and activities can begin to fill lives; where plans for a new future can be made. A place of hope where change is not just a possibility but a reality. We provide a welcoming and safe environment for those who would otherwise be homeless. It is a place where guests, staff, volunteers and partner agencies can work together to create a focus on choice, opportunity and change.
