Emmaus communities provide a home and meaningful work for people who have experienced homelessness, helping them to find a way to move on with their lives.
From house clearances to getting involved with the wider community, we offer a wide range of services.
Oxford homelessness charity Emmaus Oxford provides active support to 28 formerly homeless people.
We provide a real, alternative solution to homelessness that works; providing people with a home for as long as they need it, and meaningful work in one of our social enterprises where they gaining valuable experience, new skills and a route into independence.
Our store on Barns Road in Cowley raises vital funds for the charity. The shop is a treasure trove of quality preloved furniture, as well as a great place to browse vintage household items, clothing and bric-a-brac.
In 2015 our companions made a short film explaining what we do and why. Check it out here:
