An Introduction to 'Caritas Anchor House' - the homelessness and social action charity in East London

This month Celebrity Creations Management ran the 'Santa's for the Homeless 2016' campaign in association with She Inspired Her, which was an event initiative created for the homeless by female entrepreneur 'Celebrity Creations Management' Director and 'She Inspired Her' Editor-in-Chief Crystal King UK.

For this campaign we set ourselves the mission to create up to 100 Winter Kits, to distribute as gifts to the street homeless during Christmas week, whilst also providing each person with a hot meal and some good company in the festive season!

We reached our goal and the campaign was a roaring success and we could not have done it without the kind assistance of Caritas Anchor House whom were our official East London Venue Sponsor, allowing us be able to facilitate public clothing donations for the winter kits and providing a great space for our team to sort through, store and wrap the winter kit gifts in time for Christmas week - ready to go out to the homeless at a wonderful breakfast event which was put on by Emmanuel Parish Church on 22nd December 2016! 


As a result of the generosity of Caritas Anchor House we were able to make many a homeless person smile, eat well and enjoy the company of others during Christmas week.

She Inspired Her would now like to encourage our readers to give back to a charity that has done so much over the years directed at homelessness and social action. We urge all She Inspired Her readers and followers to donate to this wonderful charity in the New Year and help them to continue their great work into 2017 and beyond!

AN INTRODUCTION TO CARITAS ANCHOR HOUSE

Caritas Anchor House is a homelessness and social action Charity in Newham, East London

We provide residential and life-skills support for single homeless adults, and act as a community empowerment hub in the local area. Our charity’s driving mission is to ensure that those who walk through our doors grow in confidence and move towards leading independent, self-fulfilling lives by providing education, guidance and personal rehabilitation. In the year to October 2016, we offered a home and support to 235 homeless people, helped 84 into independent living and 37 into employment.

In 2011, we launched our £15.3million Home and Hope Appeal which will transform transform our organisation and leave a lasting legacy in Newham. The Appeal is progressing well and this December marks the completion of phase two — the construction of 25 move on flats. The flats are designed to help residents achieve a sustainable transition back into independent living, and will be fully occupied by January 2017.

The final phase of the appeal is now kicking off and will see us expand our training and educational facilities, which will include a new training kitchen.  These facilities will meet the increased demand on our services, and enable our residents to gain the skills and confidence needed to secure employment.   

The new facilities will respond to the social demands and requirements of our local area and become a central hub for community services.

Caritas Anchor House currently has £2.23million left to raise for the appeal – and to reach our target we need your support. By making a donation to our Hope and Hope Appeal you can help support our the hundreds of people who now call Caritas Anchor House home. Each donation we receive, great or small, can make a difference to someone’s life and is truly appreciated.
