Hope into Action
Hope into Action: Southampton is a project of City Life Church Southampton. It is a franchise, and part of Hope Into Action UK – a Christian housing project set up to help break the cycle of housing poverty. We enable churches to provide homes for the homeless, with a core mission to #makehomelessnesshistory. We provide temporary supported accommodation for homeless people, ex-offenders, those struggling with substance misuse, refugees, asylum seekers and more.
We set affordable rent levels that do not trap tenants into benefits and not being able to work, instead we raise funds through grants and inviting people to give and join our work for any shortfall not covered through rental income. We aim to break the cycle of homelessness by providing a platform for lasting change – genuine loving, supportive community.
