A Home With A Difference

Highway House is more than a homeless shelter. It’s a home to over 50 men and women, and since we opened our doors in 2009, over 750 people  have been helped with shelter, food and counselling, along with the opportunity for much needed companionship with others. We also provide employment training, jobs fairs and internet access for job searches.

We help those who have fallen on difficult times in their lives and need a helping hand. This includes those who are some of the most disenfranchised in our communities and  without our help, would simply not be able to access other shelters in London. (including those with no recourse to public funds) Many have misused alcohol and drugs and have lost contact with their families and friends. We work to help them rebuild their lives, rebuild their confidence and rebuild themselves.

Highway House is based in Tottenham, London and works with a range of public services to ensure we are able to offer the fullest support to our residents. We are open to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have no set time limit on an individuals stay. Instead, we work diligently with each person to ensure when they leave us they are ready to be independent once again and return to a full and fruitful life.

Christmas is over but we are still appealing for funds to reach our target for renovation. Read Our Christmas Appeal Newsletter for an update from CEO Pastor Alex Gyasi and to find out more about why we need to raise £10,000 for our resident this winter: Highway House Christmas Newsletter
