Growth Night Shelter
Growth is an initiative by local churches in Tower Hamlets to respond to homelessness in our local community. The main project is an emergency night shelter which provides both immediate shelter for homeless men and women and assistance in securing more permanent longer-term accommodation. The night shelter operates for seven months of the year and guests are welcomed from the local area without discrimination or favour.
Growth also provides supported housing for formerly homeless men and are developing social enterprises to assist guests towards mainstream employment. Growth is a holistic response to homelessness addressing both practical and spiritual needs, so the guests are given the opportunity to engage with the Christian faith if they so wish.
BGMC is one of the many local churches that provides accommodation and volunteers once a week to welcome, feed and support homeless men and women.
