A Challenge to the Church
The Bible speaks to us as Christians about our practical service for Christ. Jesus said “I was in prison and you visited me, I was homeless and you housed me”. Paul was “eager to help the poor” and John reminded us that, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?”. In Southport these scriptures were challenging to us. The Samaritan put his hand in his own pocket, paid the innkeeper and committed to paying all expenses until the man recovered. Following this example, one member of our church put up a small pension of £6,000 and another church member borrowed £20,000 on her property. We purchased our first property to house the homeless! God did the rest and he has enabled us to equip others to do the same!
The Partner
The Bible talks about Christians being committed to serving one another. Each partner agrees to house and care for the homeless in their locality. The partner recommends property to us for purchase, receives housing referrals, maintains the property, cares for residents and manages their Housing Benefit claim. Through their volunteer team each partner assists the residents with managing bills, family advice, claiming benefits, training, accessing employment and more. Most importantly our partners pray for our residents and through all their support the love of Christ is shared in word and deed. 
Green Pastures
Through our network of 50+ partners we house and care for 800+ people and lives are transformed every day! We will provide you with all the paperwork and resources to equip you to do the job. We will guide you through all the administration setup (including compiling the rent sheet) through our team of partner liaisons. You will have access to 20 years of experience in housing the homeless and the shared knowledge of all our partners. We gather all our partners together for 24 hrs once a year for training, encouragement and worship. You DON’T need experience in housing but you DO need a heart for the needy. We are here to serve and release each partner into caring for the homeless and those in most need.
