Our residential projects house 58 people and on average we have 20-30 people every day at the St Clare's Community Hub. The provision of this service as well as the up keep of our properties, costs in excess of £2.4 million annually. If you can help in any way, any financial contributions would be very gratefully received.


Today Worthing Churches Homeless Projects helps over 1,000 people each year providing a range of services including a Community Hub and 4 Accommodation Projects. Any one night there are up to 58 people in our accommodation services. We work with them on a one to one basis to enable them to live independently once again.


We organise, run and take part in a variety of fundraising events throughout the year ranging from musical dinner evenings to skydiving. Our aim is to cater for all tastes so hopefully you will find something that appeals to you.

I was living with my mum and her boyfriend, but he and I didn’t get on. We kept arguing and in the end they asked me to leave. I spent a few weeks staying with friends on their sofas but knew that couldn’t last. I was struggling to keep my job, I kept missing days.
