The Reach Out Extienda La Mano Project
‘Reach Out’ is designed to demonstrate the unconditional love of Jesus, by reaching out to those in desperate need – especially the homeless and destitute of our town and surrounding area. There is no descrimination as we help anyone in need. We have set up a drop in/outreach Centre where people seeking help can come and have a chat with us. Our aim is to be different to already existing organizations by making sure that, whoever comes to us, is not just another number but becomes our friend. We try to take time to sit down, offer a coffee and biscuits.
Building a relationship and trust is the first step, trying to bring a little relief into their physical situation the next, and only then will we seek to work on the spiritual side of things.
For Families we offer food once a fortnight and we do try to tailor the parcels as much as we can to individual needs, like family size and childrens ages. We also offer clothes, bedding, towels, household items and even furniture if needed as long as we have these things in our shop.
For the Homeless, apart from Breakfast and Lunch, they can take a shower, have a shave, get some clean clothes, even maybe a haircut. We also give them some food to take away on Friday, which of course needs to be somewhat different to the usual parcels as they don’t normally have access to cooking facilities. We can prepare and print documents, CVs, copy documents, and help arrange meetings with Social Services and other agencies.
In addition to all this we also offer counselling (presently only in English).
