Stable One helps local churches in a region to work together to provide ‘more than a place to stay’ for people in their communities who are experiencing homelessness at the coldest times of year.
Offering safe and supportive shelter for those experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, Stable One is resourcing the Church to work together across denominations to care for the most vulnerable in our communities
Stable One’s Winter Shelter initiative was born out of the prayers of the Church, research into similar projects around the world, and a biblical mandate to care for our most vulnerable neighbours. A Winter Shelter typically runs for 13 weeks from June to August and provides a powerful opportunity for churches and volunteers to connect with the reality of homelessness in our communities.
Stable One’s mission is to support the Church as it works together to share the love of God by providing accommodation to those in need. To journey with each person towards stability, offering physical and spiritual care. ( 150 - 200 words )
