Connect: ending homelessness

We want to see an end to homelessness. In this spring issue of Connect, read about how your support is working towards this.  

magazine front cover At the end of March, the Glasgow Winter Night Shelter, pictured, closes its doors for another winter. Once again, some of the most vulnerable men and women in Glasgow have received a safe place to sleep along with love and care, thanks to the dedication of staff and volunteers and to our generous and faithful supporters. Read about the impact of the night shelter in Connect.

Housing First

But there’s a shift taking place in the way Scotland is tackling homelessness, and it is our prayer that soon the night shelter will no longer be needed. The Scottish Government has agreed in principle that Housing First be the default response to providing accommodation for people who are homeless. We wouldn’t have been in a position to influence the debate without your support. Find out more in Connect.

The needs of those we work with are always changing – we’re in the people business after all – and so our services change and adapt to best meet these needs. Our evening Drop-in, a staple in the lives of men and women who are homeless, is undergoing a transformation as we seek to build deeper relationships. Find out how this is proving a life-line for Bryan.

Child and Family Centre

And prevention is better than cure, so we’re committed to ensuring the families we work with at our Child and Family Centre receive all the support they need and can fulfil their potential. Discover the many ways that Natalie and her family are benefitting from and contributing to the life of the Centre.

The stories you will read about in Connect would not have been possible without the prayers and support of our generous supporters or the dedication of our volunteers.
