We’re keen to show Leamington that ‘homeless people’ aren’t some homogenous group of good for nothings, but individuals who have something to offer.
We also want to show that helping people who are homeless or with addictions isn’t just about dealing with physical poverty, but addressing emotional and spiritual poverty. We want to help equip churches and other groups interested in working with people who are marginalized and accepting them into their own communities and networks.
So help us spread the word!
