GrowTH is an initiative by local churches in Tower Hamlets to respond to homelessness in our local community. Their 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. Their night shelter operates for seven months of the year and guests are welcomed from the local area without discrimination or favour.
They also provide supported housing for formerly homeless men and women helping them transition from homelessness to independent living. It is a much-needed ‘stepping stone’ and ‘helping hand’ on what, for many, is a difficult journey.
GrowTH is a holistic response to homelessness addressing both practical and spiritual needs, so their guests are given the opportunity to engage with the Christian faith if they so wish.
