As we move into the cold of winter, it seems a good time to update you on some of the things that have been happening at Alabaré recently, as we seek to support people out of the crisis of homelessness and into living fulfilling lives.
Despite recent challenges, Alabaré continues to grow and expand its services. This year we have established three new homes, with each of these properties providing something different to our regular homeless service. Stanley Road and Clevedon Road in Weston super Mare cater for those at different stages in their recovery from drug and alcohol substance misuse. Hope House in Chippenham is a 4-bed supported short-term residential service for those experiencing mental health crises. Offering peer to peer support, Hope House aims to be a respite house that supports people in crisis as they build a sense of meaning and purpose beyond their challenges.
We are so very grateful for all the support we receive from the worshipping communities, it makes such a difference to the work we are able to do. Please continue to hold our work in your prayers.
With very best wishes
Church Engagement Officer
