Homes for the Homeless
We have now reached the total required to purchase a property, thanks to a generous donation from R A Chilton Ltd in Tarvin, Chester!
However, we will keep this project open and any additional monies raised will contribute towards the decorating and running costs of the new home.
An amazing THANK YOU to everyone who bought a brick and to those who continue to support the charity, we couldn't have done it without you.
About the Campaign
One of share's main projects is our “Buy a Brick” campaign.
The project goal is to purchase a derelict or empty building which can be refurbished with the help of local businesses and trades-persons, to become a three bedroomed or more dwelling to move at least three people who are homeless off the streets.
Chester Aid To The Homeless (CATH) have agreed to select and support the homed people, share will work with them to get them volunteering in the share shop to get some job experience and will provide them with food, drink and clothing.
Once assessed ready, share will provide them with a reference and will work with local businesses to find them full paid employment. Once financially stable, we will work to move them in to rented accommodation and then take another three people off the streets of Chester.
