Each year we serve around 40,000 free meals and snacks to those who are homeless and most in need.
We help on average over 100 visitors each day.
Our volunteers contribute 10,000 hours each year to ensure we can meet the needs of everyone who comes in.
Everything we offer is free of charge to ensure that no one is excluded from finding a solution to their crisis.
We receive no state funding and are 100% reliant upon donations from the public, churches and local businesses.
If someone were to offer you a crumpled £20, chances are you would take it. The note may be battered, torn or dirty but its value remains the same.
The people we encounter have had a tough time in life; they are homeless and often vulnerable. But, like the £20 note, we believe that everyone has value, and that a person's past or current circumstances do not diminish their worth or their potential. It is our aim to restore the self-confidence of our guests, helping them overcome addictions and other barriers.
Medway has the largest total number of homeless people in Kent.
