Newport Homeless Night Shelter is up and running for 2017

We are excited once again to be able to provide emergency accommodation to homeless people this winter in partnership with Newport churches. The first night (20 Nov) got off to an excellent start, with everything going smoothly. We had a total of 14 referrals asking for emergency assistance with 9 people accessing the shelter. Work now starts to find homes for those who we are supporting. Please pray for us and our guests throughout the winter.
