At Maidstone Day Centre we offer a comprehensive programme of support to homeless and vulnerable people. Practical help must come first with hot showers, clean clothes and home cooked meals. Next, we assist clients to access benefits, mental and physical healthcare & to deal with any other problems. We also run a 'halfway house' a ten bed HMO (House of Multiple Occupation) Our community food share project, Food for Thought, provides for men, women and children who would otherwise go hungry.
As set out in Homeless Care's Memorandum and Articles of Associationthe objects of the company are: 'To help alleviate suffering by supporting homeless and vulnerable people with the provision of Day Centre facilities, temporary/short term accommodation and/or community food share services as appropriate to collective/individual need, within the borough of Maidstone and its surrounding areas. '
Homeless Care aims to:
- To buy a home of our own. The increase in homelessness and people coming to us for help means that we have outgrown our current, rented, premises. We need security and space to expand and progress.
