Imagine spending Christmas out on the streets; no home, no family, cold and exhausted.
At Shekinah we ensure that we make everyone welcome over the festive period and open our doors to offer a warm welcome, hot meals, showers and clean clothes.
We can’t do this alone, so please donate and PLEASE HELP US GIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMELESS HOPE AND A CHRISTMAS THEY WILL ENJOY.
With your financial support, we are also hoping to raise enough funding this year to enable us to open our Drop-in Centre on a Sunday morning. This will mean that Shekinah will be able to provide a 7-day a week service for rough sleepers.
For our clients
A hot meal Lunch with friends in a safe environment, friendship, a listening ear and respite from the cold. Companionship Christmas. Perhaps the hardest time of year to be alone. For many people, Shekinah is the only place where they will be greeted and warmly received. Some have nowhere else to go.

A shower, fresh set of clothes and a hot meal can help turn a life around receiving fresh hope for the New Year ahead.
