The community is supported by social enterprises, including a café at The Orchard and retail space, selling second-hand furniture and goods.
We also have a shop on Newland Avenue, which opened in 2011, selling recycled second-hand goods.
The shop is run by Emmaus Hull companions, giving them a sense of purpose and helping to restore self-esteem, which can be eroded when someone experiences homelessness.
There are 29 Emmaus communities right around the UK providing a home and meaningful work to previously homeless men and women. The first community was opened in 1991 in Cambridge and Emmaus has since spread nationwide.
