Since HHfR started we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from individuals and groups within the community. Here are a few of the organisations which have helped us, and who we like to support in any way we can:
The Warren offers free support, guidance, training, music, education and counselling services to young people aged 14-25 who are experiencing unemployment, homelessness, isolation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, drug-abuse, bullying, neglect, domestic violence, family-relationship breakdown, learning difficulties, racism and homophobia.
They are now operating as a drop-off point for HHfR, Tues & Thurs 10-5, Weds 10-1, Fri 10-4.
Beverley Cherry Tree Community Association
The community association has shown us great support by offering their premises as a drop-off point for donations.
Middle Child Theatre Group
The Middle Child Theatre group is a Hull-based company exploring what it means to live in modern Britain while recognising the importance of theatre as a social event, giving audiences a reason to come early and stay late.
Following their Christmas pantomime production in December, the Middle Child Theatre Group invited their audiences to donate to HHfR. A total of £878.89 was raised.
We are incredibly grateful for their support and the audiences generosity.
Hull Homeless Outreach
Hull Homeless Outreach was established in October 2013 and has since greatly expanded and enhanced its charity efforts. When first launched the organisation was known as Operation Safe Winter, and had the basic objective of helping the local homeless community survive the winter by providing basic necessities such as clothing, blankets and food. Since then however, it has evolved into a fully-fledged registered not-for-profit organisations; Hull Homeless Outreach LTD, and is run completely by volunteers.
The group provides a street kitchen every Wednesday and Thursday evening at St Mary The Virgin Church, Lowgate, Hull. And they also operate a non-referral food bank at the same location on Tuesday’s between 12pm and 2pm.
Open Doors Project
The Open Doors Project works with asylum seekers, whether their claims have been accepted or turned down, who have become destitute. Their aim is to support refugees, enabling them to integrate into the local society help them live independent and confident lives.
The group meets every Thursday from 10am to 3pm At Princes Avenue Methodist Church, Hull.
