As part of our development plans, a supported housing programme was set up for homeless men who are seeking structure and stability in their lives. It is aimed at providing residents with effective coping mechanisms and the support needed to live life with dignity and security, in addition to understanding and addressing the root causes of their homelessness. It provides six units of accommodation and is proving very successful in meeting the needs of residents.
As a result of the increasing numbers of homeless and marginalised in our community W.H. Five Loaves has identified a need for a supported housing project for homeless women. It is our intention to model this venture on the ethos and structure of Ark Housing which has proven to be a considerable benefit to the community.
Development of Ark House
In 2013 we were delighted to announce that we have purchased our second house in the hope of providing accommodation to the vulnerable and at risk in our community.
The project will be modeled on Ark Housing, providing all the supports necessary but more importantly giving those in need, a place to call home.
