Emmaus supports people to work their way out of homelessness.
Emmaus provides a home and meaningful work for as long as someone needs it.
Established in 1971, Emmaus International is now made up of more than 350 groups, in 37 countries, across four regions: Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Emmaus International has five priority areas:
Staff, companions and trustees from the UK regularly visit projects in other parts of the world and raise money at home for groups in poorer countries through acts of solidarity.
