LATEST NEWS GOOD NEWS - Dock House reopened its doors on Tuesday 2nd December, 2014 for 12 weeks over the winter period. This is largely thanks to the many generous individuals, churches, schools, companies and charities who have kindly donated clothes, bedding, food and money.
I am sure you have seen the enormous amount of publicity we have recently received. This has helped not only to assist us in opening Dock House but has raised the issue of homelessness and contributed to a better understanding for the wider community.
On behalf of HULLHARP I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have made the reopening possible.
Linda Tock, Manager
GIVE A BED FOR CHRISTMAS – APPEAL FOR THE HOMELESS
Hull Homeless and Rootless is a Hull Charity that provides emergency accommodation for people that are currently homeless in Hull. Dock House reopened on December 2nd ready for the cold, dark winter nights, and has enough funding for twelve weeks.
The people that arrive at our door have one alternative to the shelter: to sleep on the streets for that night. They face extremes of weather in hand-made shelters, which may be the clothes they stand in and a few cardboard boxes. Our shelter offers them a warm, safe place where they can get a hot meal, a shower, a bed and access to support services.
“Thank you for re-opening the shelter. Tonight I have a warm bed and somewhere to be safe” Walter, Resident
We can currently fund twelve beds; with your generosity we could increase the number of these beds and open throughout the year, instead of turning people away.
Help us, help those people without a home and Buy a Bed for Christmas with a donation of £115 will buy a bed for a week. Any donation big or small makes a difference. For the price of a Christmas present you can give a bed and safety to a homeless person.
