 The Reach Out Project

The President, Board of Trustees and all volunteers wish to extend our thanks to all those who have supported us through various mediums – donations, events, personal gifts etc, and attending functions organised for the benefit of the Charity.
Without your diligence, kindness and unselfishness we would not be able to meet our commitments. 

‘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. 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 organisations 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 and a hot lunchtime meal.

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.

The Families Supermarket!
For families we offer food once a week and we do try to tailor the parcels as much as we can to individual needs, like family size and so on. We also offer clothes, bedding, towels, household items and even furniture if needed as long as we have these things in storage.

For the homeless, apart from breakfast and lunch, they can take a shower, have a shave, get some clean clothes, even maybe a haircut and a foot treatment. We also give them some food to take away, which of course needs to be somewhat different to the usual parcels as they don’t normally have access to cooking facilities.

The Vision

This is only a first step, the vision is going somewhat further. We want a much larger place, where we can have a shop and café/social area in the front, lots of storage and workshops in the back.

In the first few weeks of opening one other thing has become very clear; the overwhelming need for emergency accommodation. Nothing of that kind is available, but desperately needed for all nationalities, even for the British as we found out to our amazement.

The Families Supermarket

Is located in Calle Bella Antonia and this is the hub of the Charity.
The main office where all our Administration is carried out is a small area behind the Comedor.  Our Families Supermarket is also behind the Comedor and from here we distribute food and hygiene products to the needy families registered with us.
