The property includes ten rooms which will be available to people made homeless as a result of personal crises, including the COVID-19 global pandemic, and was launched with the support from the Department of Community and Justice.

Jewish House CEO, Rabbi Mendel Kastel said, “We are excited to announce the opening of this new property, and thank Wesley Mission for their partnership and collaboration. Our frontline team has seen an increase in demand for support from people made homeless as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. The opening of this new temporary accommodation property will allow us to help more people than ever before. We are so pleased to be able to provide ten more warm, safe, clean rooms to help people in times of desperate need”.

Rev Keith V Garner, CEO of Wesley Mission, said earlier: “In these challenging times, we must do all we can to support those who are most vulnerable in our community. This new location, delivered in partnership with our long-term friends at Jewish House demonstrates the commitment we share to help people leave homelessness for good.”

The new property will provide a safe space for men and women in need of accommodation, and provide them with direct access to social workers, counsellors and psychologists – giving them the tools to find hope and stability.
