Highway House By Highway House

We are a community orientated organisation reaching and restoring the destitute and marginalised homeless in our local area and beyond!

Haringey Delivery stage

pledged of £12,055

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Our aims are to create a conducive environment in our shelter in which homeless people can regain confidence; the ability to become independent, improve their health and state of mind.

The Highway House provides food, recreation, counselling, employment training and pastoral support to about 50 men at a time (for very short periods we have had to shelter women also). The project has been in existence since August 2009 and over the past three and a half years over 500 people have been beneficiaries of the Highway House. Residents have either found stable employment that enables them to rent a property; or have been provided housing by the council whilst others have gained enough stability to return back to their countries of origin.

What we'll deliver:

  • Renovate the shower
  • Upgrade drainage system to handle the heavy use of the shower and toilet and kitchen
  • We want to upgrade the living space for our residents, to make the property more suitable for them.
  • We will need to insulate the whole building

Why it's a great idea:

The upgrade for the Highway House homeless centre is a great idea because it will improve the standard of living for our residents that we are helping to get back on their feet.
The upgrade will make the living space more comfortable for residents as well as more durable for the extensive use of it.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buy the resources needed and employ the services of some of the Highway House residents skilled work men.
