Our team meets men and women with open arms, and an ear ready to hear the stories of what has brought them to us. It is at this moment that we are able to tangibly demonstrate love through the meeting of physical needs: a warm safe place to sleep, a hot meal, a warm shower and hygiene kit, and clothing vouchers. This is the starting point for starting over!
