Emmaus is a national homelessness charity with a difference. We don’t just give people a bed for the night; we offer a home, meaningful work, support and a sense of belonging. There are 30 communities supporting more than 850 formerly homeless people across the UK.
You only have to read the stories of some of the people we have supported to see what a difference Emmaus makes.
