New homeless shelter seeks volunteers

In September Birmingham’s only permanent night shelter, Tabor House, will open its doors, supporting homeless people in the city to get off the streets and change their lives.

More than just a bed for the night, Tabor House will help the people staying there to access support services leading to rehabilitation, more permanent accommodation and eventually independent living. And they need your help to make this happen.

On Thursday 13 July they are holding an open evening at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Digbeth for people to come along and find out how they can get involved with supporting homeless people.

Tabor House is a collaboration between corporate philanthropists, the Archdiocese of Birmingham, Midland Heart, Father Hudson’s, the SVP, Housing Justice, Irish in Birmingham and committed volunteers. They’re looking for volunteer mentors to support people with taking steps to take back control of their lives, hospitality volunteers to assist with preparing food and drinks, make beds and keep the place tidy, and volunteer shift leaders to bring it all together.

To find out more about how you can help, simply come along to the volunteer open evening between 6pm and 9pm. For details, see the Tabor House Volunteer Open Evening event page or please call Christy Acton on 01675 434064.
