Just Homes aims to provide help for homeless people seeking to rebuild their lives. We do this for two particular groups:
Unemployed men who can access state benefits (have recourse to public funds)
women and children who do not qualify for state benefits (have no recourse to public funds).
The way we help is to provide people with short term accommodation, training and volunteering opportunities, support to gain employment and pathways to more permanent accommodation. Whilst they are with us we aim to foster a sense of security and community.
Our Men’s Work.
We support people who are single homeless who may be unemployed, ex-offenders and/or those with a history of drug or alcohol abuse into employment and more permanent accommodation. We work within Newham and at any one time we are able to accommodate about 35 single homeless men across three properties in Canning Town, Forest Gate and Manor Park.
Our Women’s Work.
We work with women with dependent children who have no recourse to public funds. We have provision for 5 free rooms for clients who are in this category. Along with our partner organisations we support them to get the necessary paperwork together to put in either their Asylum or Home Office application. We also have some bed spaces for women referred to us through Social Services. These are women whose applications have been filed with the Home Office.
